In the video below, Dr. Cali Crampton of KFBRP explains how we are using artificial intelligence to refine our predator control strategies such as our use of camera trapping with Good Nature A24 Traps.

The most important take-away from this video however, is that Kauaʻi’s forest birds perform critical ecosystem functions that protect the overall forest environment. Since the forest is responsible for the infiltration of rain and the  health of the  watershed, losing these species could have catastrophic downstream effects. Dr. Crampton stresses that it is our species (humans) that put these birds into a perilous situation by introducing species to which the birds have no defense, and she reminds us that it is our responsibility to protect these endangered birds, which is exactly what the Kauaʻi Forest Bird Recovery Project aims to do.
