Beautiful Pictures of a Restoration Trip to Kaho’olawe in Hawaii

Kaho’olawe is one the smallest volcanic islands in Hawaii. During World War II, the island was used by the US military as a bombing range. Since then, it has become a reserve, and people have called attention to its environmental and cultural restoration. The pictures Justin Ornellas took on a restoration trip show some of the damage and erosion of the island due to the bombs. However, they also depict the beauty the island still possesses, which is a great way to encourage the continuation of the environmental restoration of the island.

To see more of Justin’s work, visit his website or Flickr.
