The Big Island of Hawaii is larger than all of the other islands combined. It is 95 miles long, 80 miles wide and a total of 4,038 square miles and it is still growing due to the constant lava flow from Kilauea.
Pele is the Hawaiian Goddess of Volcanoes, and the The Big Island was created from 5 different volcanoes. The five volcanoes are Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Kilauea, Hualalai and Kohala.
Kilauea is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. It has been active for over 600,000 years. Lava has been flowing from Kilauea to the ocean daily since 1983.
There are 13 different climate zones in the world. Each climate zone has it’s own unique ecosystem.
