Mission Statement

The Discovery Forest is designed to represent natural systems, creating a scene of Hawai'i before the arrival of humans and demonstrating culturally significant plant and tree species that once grew near traditional shoreline villages of O'ahu. This replication of coastal ecosystems is providing a habitat for Hawaiian plants, birds, and invertebrates, while reconnecting urban visitors with the Hawai'ian forest.The project is benefiting an estimated 700,000 visitors per year to the zoo.
