Now is the time to help put Hawaii on the map! With our first-ever Festival of Birds and the opening of the Hawaii Island Coast to Coast Birding Trail just a couple of weeks away, the timing is perfect to get official recognition for the state’s endemic species.
We encourage everyone to visit the ABA blog to learn more. You can only vote if you are a current ABA member (as of October 28, 2016) so if you want to see Hawaii added to the “official” ABA listings, here’s your chance. If you’re not a member, there is still time to join so that you can join the vote.
There are many issues involved, some scientific in origin and some more emotionally charged, but your vote can make a difference.
Naturally, we’re in support of this initiative and hope to welcome ABA’s support for birding in Hawaii. We’ll announce any updates as we are made aware of them.
