Hawaiian white hibiscus Extinction

Hibiscus waimeaeConservatory Room Location:

Hibiscus waimeae is endemic to Kauai, occurring in two distinct and isolated populations on opposite sides of the island. Though separated by less than 30 miles, these have evolved to have unique flower and leaf characteristics that distinguish them from one another. Because Hibiscus species hybridize readily, the unique characteristics of Hibiscus waimeae are threatened by cross-pollination with non-native varieties that have been introduced to Kauai for ornamental use. By carefully hand-pollinating and isolating flowers of Hibiscus waimeae, conservationists are able to collect, grow and store seeds that have not been cross-pollinated.

OK I'm buying my kitties new collars. I have a solid black 1 eyed cat, sorta wierdo kitty (lol) and her current collar is black with rainbow colored flames. Its cool looking, kinda wild like she is. But time for a new one. I bought one, thats hot pink, black, and white, sorta hibiscus, hawaiian print for her, and its much to feminine for her, so I think Im gonna give that one to Patty my calico. Any ideas for a cool collar?
Doesnt have to be "macho" i mean she is still a girl, but definately no frills, or rhinestones. lol, my male cat is more into the pinks and rhinestones. shhhhhh!

Have you noticed how many people drive around with hibiscus decals, or Makaki'i Hawaiian helmets with feathers hanging from rear view mirrors? Why white kids have had legislator's to try to overturn Kamehameha school enrollment policy(must be 25% Hawaiian)? How anyone who has ever lived or spent time there claim they are Hawaiian? Most are Filipino or Guamanian, lots of Asians also.Kind of like on St. Patrick's day EVERYONE is Irish yea?
