The first predator proof fence on Kauai was completed in 2014 at Nihoku (also known as Crater Hill) within the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge and created a six-acre refugium for native plant and animal communities after the removal of predators and outplanting of native plants. In November 2015, 10 Endangered Hawaiian Petrel chicks were removed from their mountain colonies by helicopter and were transported to Nihoku where they were cared for by humans for a month in hopes of starting a new, protected petrel colony on the refuge. Join us in learning about, and celebrating, the completion of this important step toward a future where Hawai’i’s plants and wildlife can thrive again.

This FREE event is sponsored by the Friends of the North Shore Library at Princeville as part of the Dotty Nakea Memorial Speaker Program and by the Princeville Public Library.
