I hope to feature updates monthly. If you would like to support the zoo you can make a donation at, https://www.honoluluzoo.org visit their “Get Involved Page” where you can make a donation. Or visit their Membership page where you and your family can become an annual member starting as low as 50 dollars. Each Level of membership is named after one of the zoo’s celebrity animals from the Ground Hornbill to Chimpanzee Family to Gharial Supporter, Orangutang Supporter or the Lion Director. My family is a chimpanzee family and the name is fitting because my kids are monkeys.

The Honolulu Zoo is Open from 10 am 0 3 pm 7 days a week. I encourage you to visit the zoo next time you are out here on the island.

If you would like to see a see the Baby rinocerous, Akamu,  or the siamang gibbon and other zoo trip photos go to my instagram called fieldtripproducts.  There you will see the swinging siamang gibbon, Akamu the baby ring, a very lactive and loud laughing kookaburra as well as more photos and also the “Save the chubby unicorn shirt” that’s only on my instagram at fieldtripproducts


The word Kewalo can be translated to the Place of Wailing, or directly translated to “the calling” as in echo. But why?

This is from images of old hawaii.com written by Peter T Young

“Kewalo literally means “the calling (as an echo).” Outcasts (kauwā) intended for sacrifice were drowned in a pond here as the first step in a sacrificial ritual known as Kānāwai Kaihehe‘e or Ke-kai-he‘ehe‘e, which translates as “sea sliding along,” suggesting that the victims were slid under the sea. (Cultural Surveys)

The priest holding the victim’s head under water would say to her or him on any signs of struggling, “Moe malie i ke kai o ko haku.” “Lie still in the waters of your superiors.” From this it was called Kawailumalumai, “Drowning waters.” (Cultural Surveys)

Today, Kewalo and the district of Kakaʻako are an important link between Honolulu and Waikīkī and are undergoing tremendous commercial and residential redevelopment and is well on its way as a vibrant place to live, work, play and learn, within easy distance between the two commercial centers.” ref: https://imagesofoldhawaii.com/kewalo/
