January Meeting: Hawaii, Saving Native Seabirds and Forest Birds on Kauai
January 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Barbara Heindl is a Wildlife ecologist from Madison, Wisconsin. She received a BS in Wildlife
Ecology and a Masters in GIS and Cartography both from UW Madison. She has done
Ornithological field work across North America including Alaska, New Mexico, Maine, Jamaica
and Hawaii. Most notably she worked on Kauai Island for almost a decade researching and
developing strategies to conserve endangered Seabirds and Forest birds. She moved back to
Wisconsin in 2018 to help manage the family sheep farm and currently works for the DNR in the
Public Lands Department.
Hawaii is well known as the extinction capital of the world. Geographically isolated with few
parent individuals the birds of Hawaii evolved into a diverse and spectacular group of species
with a unique set of threats including human colonization, non- native predators, avian disease,
and climate change. Barbara will discuss the unique conditions which created the diverse group
of native Hawaiian birds and the current extraordinary efforts being taken to which are at critical tipping points in population numbers and conservation status.
