Makauwahi Cave Tours: David Burney

David Burney

  Opportunities to see Hawaii as it once was are all too rare… especially if you wonder what these islands were like before people came here.   You can get a hint from Hawaii’s largest limestone cave: Makauwahi Cave on Kaua’o. It’s a place of living history whose caretakers are not only gathering together fossil relics, they’re restoring native habitat in the surrounding area.   They’re offering tours this Thursday, Kuhio Day, and Dr. David Burney of the Makauwahi Cave Reserve joined the show to tell us more.
