Nēnē, sometimes called mountain geese, are Hawaii’s state bird. At one time, only 50 individuals existed in the wild, but a restoration project brought the Nēnē back from the brink of extinction. Now small flocks live on the islands of Hawai‘i and Kaua‘i. Nēnē are still endangered and may be the rarest geese in the world.
