May 23, 2016, 7:00-8:30 p.m.  ‘Alalā: Restoring Hawai‘i’s Native Crow to the Wild. 

Our endemic Hawaiian crow, the ‘alalā, once made its home across the length and breadth of Hawai‘i Island, but today, owing to a variety of threats in the wild, these birds exist only in captivity.  Happily, successful captive breeding and conservation efforts have helped to rescue this native Hawaiian species from the brink of extinction.  In the Fall, ‘alalā will be restored to their natural habitat and these very intelligent birds will take their place once again among the fauna of Hawaiian forests.

Tonight we welcome Lea Ka‘aha‘aina of the ‘Alalā Project (Hawai‘i Dept. of Land and Natural Resources), who relates the amazing account of the ‘alalā’s recovery and plans for its upcoming release.  Come learn more about this beloved bird, found nowhere else on Earth!

Free to Lyman Museum members; $3 nonmembers.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for evening public programs.  Limited seating; first come, first seated.   Additional parking next door at Hilo Union School. (Click here to see map of additional parking)
