BUEI Talks Presents:

Studying Endangered Seabirds on Another Small Island by Dr. André F. Raine

Like Bermuda and its famous seabird the Cahow, the island of Kaua’i is home to another very rare seabird species – the Newell’s Shearwater. 90% of the World population of this shearwater is found here, along with internationally important populations of the Hawaiian Petrel. Come out for an illustrated presentation that showcases high tech equipment and techniques in an effort to ensure that they – like the Cahow – survive into the future.

Dr André F. Raine is a Bermudian ornithologist who has worked on conservation projects throughout the World including the Amazon, Africa, Seychelles, Portugal, Canada, England, Malta and Hawaii. He currently runs an endangered seabird project on the island of Kaua’i, undertaking research and conservation actions to protect three of Hawaii’s rarest seabirds. He has written three bird guides, including the ‘Photographic Guide to the Birds of Bermuda’, and numerous scientific publications.
