He `Alalā by Gretchen Grove
The `Alalā is Hawaii’s highly endangered endemic crow. At one time the population was down to 14 birds. Today it is being raised in captivity to preserve the species. Recently the first captive-raised `Alalā were released and seem to be doing well. It is the world’s rarest and most endangered corvid species.
This is an original woodblock print by Big Island artist, Gretchen Grove. “I love that the `Alalā have whiskers and wanted to depict that in this image.”
