Through intensive conservation efforts, ‘Alalā—the endemic and endangered Hawaiian crow once considered to be extinct in the wild—have been reintroduced into native Hawaiian forests.  These conservation efforts are ongoing and plans are under way for the next reintroduction!  Rachel Kingsley, Education and Outreach Associate for The ‘Alalā Project, returns to the Museum to provide information about this unique species, an update on the birds that have been reintroduced, and plans for future reintroduction initiatives.  Join us to learn more about this highly intelligent crow species, integral to native Hawaiian ecosystems and culture, on your choice of two occasions:  Monday evening, July 27, or the following afternoon, July 28.
