Release of Endangered Shearwaters in Hawaii

Special Agents work to investigate illegalities discovered in the inspection process. For example, some of the rarest species on Earth including Sumatran Tigers, Sun Bears and Orangutans, were put into illegal trade over the internet from a Honolulu-based operation. Agents also manage and monitor agreements and conduct enforcement on neighbor islands. Agents investigate seabird fatalities associated with utility poles and related equipment where high numbers of migratory seabird colonies and interactions with utility company facilities occur. Agents also investigate environmental hazards.

Agents conduct specialized training; maintain consistent presence when conducting intergovernmental operations with Hawai`i and American Samoa; conduct complex negotiations with utility owners/operators of structures affecting endangered and migratory seabirds; and address the unique domestic traveler and domestic mail situations requiring interaction with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and U.S. Postal Service. They also provide technical and other assistance to the State regarding inundation by and interstate transport of invasive and injurious species entering into and departing from Hawai`i.
