Evening at the Movies: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them-November 22, 2017 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Kauai is the last main refuge in the world for the endemic Newell’s Shearwater, as well as holding internationally important populations of two other endemic species: the Hawaiian Petrel and the Band-rumped Storm-petrel.
The Kauai Endangered Seabird Recovery Project conducts research on all three species and undertakes a wide range of conservation initiatives to help protect them and reverse their declines.
Guest lecturer Dr. Andre Raine will discuss these various initiatives and the challenges of working on extremely rare seabird species that nest mainly in the most remote and mountainous areas of Kauai. He will also talk about the importance of Kauai to these seabirds and why protecting them on the island is key to ensuring the species survive into the future.
Dr. Raine is the Project Manager for the Kauai Endangered Seabird Recovery Project, where he has worked for the last six years. He has worked on a wide range of conservation projects around the world, include Malta, Bermuda, the Peruvian Amazon, Zambia, England and the Seychelles. His current research focuses on how to protect and conserve Kauai’s endangered Seabirds.

The north shore of Kauai is the only place in the world where albatross have chosen to nest among humans. Even though their numbers here represent a miniscule percentage of the entire population, every chick matters. With Midway Atoll gradually getting submerged, Kauai is their Noah’s Ark
Hob Osterlund, founder of the Kauai Albatross Network and
author of “Holi Moli: Albatross and Other Ancestors,” will share
videos and slides of Kauai’s albatross and speak about their future on the Garden Isle.
