Iconic, endemic Hawaiian forest birds are facing an extinction crisis accelerated by the effects of. Hawaiian forest birds are now found only at high, cooler elevations, where they persist in habitats outside the range of invasive mosquitoes and the transmission of avian malaria, the primary driver of bird declines.
This strategy provides a comprehensive approach to prevent the extinction of Hawaiian forest birds that uses the best available science, conservation techniques, and Native Hawaiian biocultural knowledge and practices. It includes the planning and implementation of landscape-level mosquito control, translocation of birds to higher elevation islands, establishment of captive populations of at-risk birds, and development of next generation tools that increase the scope or efficacy of these actions in a culturally appropriate and integrated approach.
