HALEAKALA NATIONAL PARK, Hawaii — The National Park Service says two endangered nene geese were recently killed by speeding motorists on the road to Haleakala's summit on Maui.
Park service spokeswoman Polly Angelakis said Wednesday officials found the first dead goose near mile marker 9 on Crater Road on Nov. 12.
A ranger reporting for sunrise duty last Friday morning found the second one at the intersection of Hosmer Grove inside the park.
The park service says traffic cones and caution signs remind drivers to slow down.
It also has posters in six languages explaining it's important to slow down to protect the endangered birds. The posters feature Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean and Spanish in addition to English.
