ʻUaʻu in Kohala, TCBES Natural Resource Seminar Series

Seminar title: Finding ʻUaʻu in Kohala

Speaker: Alex Wang, Specialist III, Hilo Natural Area Reserve System, DLNR DOFAW

Abstract: The ʻUaʻu (Pterodroma sandwichensis) is a federally and state listed endangered native seabird to Hawaiʻi. Once one of the most numerous species in Hawaiʻi and an important food, navigation, and fertilization resource to the islands, the remaining populations of this species are rare and cryptic on Hawaiʻi Island. While most of their life they spend at sea, the ʻuaʻu only comes to land to breed in underground burrows, which it does at night. This presentation is about the lengthy and iterative process the Natural Area Reserve Program of the state Division of Forestry and Wildlife has gone about finding a colony in the mountain of Kohala and actions they are taking to manage for their conservation.

Open to all!
