HD video: Endangered Hawaii

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 HD video looks great full screen, so be sure to click the expand icon in the lower right corner.
