This program contributes to the conservation of these species by encouraging seabird friendly lighting, educating the public about recovery of downed birds, and by protecting seabirds on their breeding grounds in the mountains of Kaua‘i. Many other native wildlife and plant species will also benefit from conservation actions
helping to provide a rich natural heritage
for future generations.
The phrase, "E awaiāulu like i ola
pūnana", is interpreted as: "Let us
work together in thought and action so that the nests may thrive." Native wildlife is likened to a nest that we, as humans, hold in our cupped hands – it is our choice to care for habitats and species.
