Mauna Loa, which means "Long Mountain" because of its long, gently sloping shape, is the largest volcano on our planet. With over 30 slow and quiet eruptions since 1843, it is also one of the most active.
Thanks to the efforts of conservationists Lorrin Thurston and Dr. Thomas A. Jaggar, the Hawaiian volcano lands became a national park in 1916 and are now an International Biosphere Reserve and World Heritage Site.
Respect for the land has long been honored in Hawaiian traditions all the way back to Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of the volcano. Hawaiian elders teach malama o ka 'aina--care for the land and the land will care for you.
So remember, e nihi ka hele, walk softly!
