WHO WE ARE
Kauaʻi Forest Bird Recovery Project is a project of the Pacific Cooperative Studies Unit of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa in association with Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW).
The Kaua‘i Forest Bird Recovery Project aims to promote knowledge, appreciation, and conservation of Kaua‘i’s native forest birds. We focus on one threatened (‘i‘iwi) and three federally endangered species (puaiohi, ‘akikiki, and ‘akeke‘e), with the goal of facilitating recovery of their populations in the wild.

After multiple rounds of testimony from students across the state, the Hawaii State Legislature designated 8.08 as Hawaii Honeycreeper Celebration Day. Events to celebrate our honeycreepers are taking place across the state this month. For a full list of events, you can check out the event listing on the Birds Not Mosquitoes website, where you can also learn more about the testimony given by our own Kaua’i students.
