Did you know that Hawaii “can rightly be called the bird extinction capital of the world”? 32 endemic bird species are federally listed as endangered. Please watch this excellent video produced by the American Bird Conservancy to learn more about bird life on Hawaii. The first third is a bit depressing, but stick with it to learn about what is being done and what work still needs to be done. The HD video looks great full screen, so be sure to click the expand icon in the lower right corner.
The Ventana Wildlife Society is the only organization in California working to restore the critically endangered California Condor population. Located in Big Sur, the sanctuary was severely damaged by the California fires. The Society has updates on the Big Sur Fire here.
The group needs donations in order to rebuild after the fires. You can donate online.
The Society also has an online boutique with logo gear and other merchandise. This week’s Tuesday t-shirt is their Condor in Flight Jr. Raglan.
