Presenters Sabra Kauka and Hob Osterlund will facilitate a lively discussion about Mōlī and other native seabirds, their importance in Hawaiian culture, and the risks they now face. A short documentary called “Kalama’s Journey” will inspire further insights and conversation. A book signing of Holy Mōlī: Albatross and Other Ancestors will follow the presentation.
