Help us save our seabirds
From October through November each year, fledgling ‘ua’u (endangered Hawaiian petrels) leave their nests to travel to sea for the first time in their lives. The birds are thought to use stars to navigate. They become confused by lights (especially those at stadiums, hotels and parks), fly in circles near the lights, become tired and fall to the ground.
Maui’s Save Our Seabirds program works together to retrieve the birds. In the last week, about 20 birds have been retrieved.
Do not give it any food or water.
Immediately call 808-280-4114.
Do not release the seabird. It is important that trained wildlife specialists inspect the bird for injuries.
Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
