DLNR News Conference Discusses Forest Bird Extinction Crisis and Potential Actions
In a recent DLNR Press release (below) and news conference (video below), experts discuss the extinction crisis faced by some of Hawai'i's rarest forest birds. A report was presented to decision makers offering a selection of actions to address the current crisis. Also included in the report are conservation strategies for other species. Experts warn that if no action is taken four species of forest birds would face extinction within 1-10 years and as many as 11 additional extinctions would occur in the next decade.
