The remoteness of the Pacific Islands made many scientists wonder how plants and animals ever made it to shore. Once these species arrived, their methods of adaptation and survival have created some of the most unique creatures on the planet. Fruit flies were among the first insects to arrive on the Hawaiian Islands millions of years ago via air current carriers. Other heavier animals have washed on shore with tangled rafts of trees and vines torn away from deadly tsunamis.
