The Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park is home to the world’s most active volcano and also the world’s largest sub-aerial volcano. It is situated on the island of Hawai’i, in the United States. This National Park was established in 1916.
Why it is special: The Park serves a multipurpose function. It attracts visitors to come and enjoy the vivid volcanic landscapes with an understanding of rare flora and fauna found only there. The Park also helps researchers and scientists study the Kílauea volcano, as well as the Mauna Loa volcano so as to understand the process of volcanism, and how the Hawaiian Islands came into being.
