Thursday Night at the Center: Return to the Wild, One Year Later: An Update on the Reintroduction Efforts of ʻAlalā

Thursday, February 21, 2019 at 6:30pm

Join us on Thursday, February 21 at 6:30pm for an update on the reintroduction efforts of the ʻAlalā. Through intensive conservation efforts 11 ʻAlalā, the endemic and endangered Hawaiian crow, have survived in native Hawaiian forests for over a year and have been joined by another 10.  Rachel Kingsley, the Education and Outreach Associate for The ʻAlalā Project, will provide information about this unique species, an update on the birds that have been reintroduced, as well as plans for future reintroduction efforts of the ʻAlalā. Please join us to learn more about this highly intelligent and unique crow species, integral to native Hawaiian ecosystems and culture.

This event is free, although a $5 donation to Volcano Art Center is greatly appreciated. For more information, please call VAC at (808) 967-8222 or visit www.volcanoartcenter.org.

This evening is part of a once-a-month Thursday night series at the Volcano Art Center, focusing on art, Hawaiian culture and our environment.  The series is intended to inspire and enhance your appreciation of art and life experience, while fostering community connections.
