Make Hawaiʻi a part of your holidays this Christmas season! This set of 5 holiday gift tag stickers each feature a different Native Hawaiian animal. Printed on gloss sticker paper, each sheet measures approximately 5" x 7".
Animals that are native to Hawaiʻi came here on their own via one of the 3 W's: wind, wings, or waves. Did you know that our Pūkele designs logo is based off of that concept? Some of these animals are endemic, meaning they are naturally occurring here and only here, and some of these animals are indigenous, meaning there are found here as well as other places around the world. Native animals featured in our holiday gift tag set are all endemic to Hawaiʻi and include...
✢ Pueo (also known as the Hawaiian owl)
✢ ʻAlalā (also known as the Hawaiian crow)
✢ ʻAlae ʻUla (also known as the Hawaiian mudhen)
✢ Nananana Makakiʻi (also known as the happy-face spider)
✢ Kāhuli (also known as the Oʻahu tree snail)
Something else that makes all of these animal special is that they are all endangered species. Hawaiʻi is considered the endangered species capital of the world as we have more endangered species that are native to Hawaiʻi than any other place. Some of the animals featured here like the ʻAlalā are critically endangered and had been designated as extinct in the wild. In addition to bringing holiday cheer, we hope these gift tags bring some awareness to these amazing creatures that we share our island homes with.
