About Franko Maps, Hawaiian Islands Reef Creatures, Fish ID-Card

Franko's Hawaiian Islands Reef Creatures Guide Side 1 is alike the other fish cards of the Hawaiian Islands in Franko's repertoire except that rather than depicting an individual island it shows the whole island chain in a mini map. The eight islands of Kauai Oahu Maui Hawaii Lanai Molokai Niihau and Kahoolawe string out across the deep Pacific like jewels. One can envision the island chain being formed island-by-island over multiple-millions of years as they arc across the middle of the North Pacific Ocean. A few of Franko's favorite snorkeling spots are shown near the islands as well. They include the likes of Hanauma Bay on Oahu to Kealakekua on the Big Island. The map is a taken from Franko's Map of Hawaii The Big Island which also shows all of the main Hawaiian Islands. The ocean blue has humpback whales spinner dolphins and a Hawaiian monk seal depicted on the blue ocean. The State of Hawaii's main towns are shown and if you look really close you might even notice the roads. Hawaii visitors to any island are likely to go snorkeling. This is possibly Hawaii's number one activity. This little map is representative of The State of Hawaii unequaled beauty both land and at sea. Side 2 shows the wonderful reef life of the Hawaiian Islands. Even though there are six other fish cards representing the individual islands of Hawaii so many people have asked for a picture of the whole island chain like this that I simply had to make it. The fish shown include over 80 species including a dozen or so that are found nowhere else on earth. The Hawaiian fish shown are selected from about 435 species that exist in Hawaii and are based on Franko's personal exploration. The colors and the means of showing them are based on personal observation. The naming of the fish in Hawaiian as well as English is helped by the experts at the Maui Ocean Center, The Pacific Whale Foundation Hanauma Bay Rangers, The Waikiki Aquarium and Local Knowledge. The fish card measure (H x L) 6" x 9" (15.24cm x 22.9cm), is printed on laminated plastic so that it is stiff, shiny and waterproof. It has a hole for a lanyard, so you can actually take it diving or snorkeling. Card makes a great gift idea.
