The Conservation Story of ‘Alalā: Past, Present, and Future of Reintroduction Efforts to Save the Hawaiian Crow

Evening Presentation:

‘Alalā, the endemic Hawaiian crow, once thrived in our forest ecosystems.  Now they are considered extinct in the wild.  Following decades of intensive and dedicated conservation efforts, the future of ‘alalā is once again under discussion.  Rachel Kingsley, Hawaiian Forest Bird Education and Outreach Associate for The ‘Alalā Project and the Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project, returns to the Museum to share information about this unique species, the past reintroduction efforts, and plans for the future of the project.  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, February 6, or the following afternoon, February 7.  

Admission to these wonderful programs is free to Museum members, and $3.00 for nonmembers.  Please support the Museum by becoming a member, and enjoy all Saigo Series programs, all year round, at no charge!
