The Hawai‘i Biannual Waterbird Survey (Survey) has evolved since its establishment in 1955 to meet changing information needs for the conservation of endemic and migratory waterbirds in Hawai‘i. From 2005 to 2015, information needs for the management and recovery of endemic, endangered waterbirds were not being addressed by the Survey. Although waterbird counts continued during this time, data entry and management lapsed and reconciliation of spatial and tabular data was only partially completed by 2007. As a result, analyses of count data, distribution, and population trends were out of date and of limited utility for informing recovery objectives and waterbird conservation efforts.

This final report summarizes: • Monthly Productivity and Carrying Capacity surveys and community engagement. • 'Opihi habitat model reflective of 1) seasonal shifts in intertidal resources from monthly surveys, and 2) shifts in intertidal habitat under 0.5 - 2.0 m sea level rise. • Maps of current and future 'Opihi habitat.
Maka’ala Project’s second huaka’i journeyed in July 2018 to Kalepa Gulch, Kalepa Muliwai, Kope Gulch and through private agricultural land above Waiehu Kou III. The day included working together to build a community identity, Asserting Access Rights, Re-Establishing Community Presence and Fortifying our Relationships with our more-than-human community. The youtube link to the video, as of July 2023, can be found below.
Around the globe, fish and wildlife managers are facing increasingly complex management issues because of multiscale ecological effects like climate change, species invasion, and land-use change. Managers seeking to prevent extinctions or preserve ecosystems are increasingly considering more interventionist techniques to overcome the resulting changes. Among those techniques, translocation methods that intentionally move species into new, less impacted habitats are being considered. These types of translocations are known by a range of terms, including “managed relocation” and “assisted migration,” but the International Union for the Conservation of Nature’s Species Survival Commission (IUCN SSC, 2013) has proposed...
