1. Island, Waimānalo, Oʻahu. In the 1880s John Cummins, the first owner of Waimānalo Plantation, decided to raise rabbits. He released them on Mānana Island, where a colony survived for approximately 100 years. The last of the rabbits were trapped and removed when the state determined that they were competing with the seabirds that nest there. The island is part of the Hawaiʻi State Seabird Sanctuary. Also known as Mānana Island. 2. Surf site, Waimānalo, Oʻahu. Off the north side of the island.
