American Birding Podcast: Bird Conservation in Hawaii with Mike Parr

The next episode of the American Birding Podcast is out!

Mike Parr is the new president of the American Bird Conservancy, one of the premier bird conservation organizations in the Americas. ABC has done a great deal of work supporting bird conservation initiatives in Hawaii, the archipelago often referred to as the “Bird Extinction Capital of the World”. Mike joins me to talk about ABC’s projects, what birders and the ABA can do to help support these efforts, and why he believes that there is absolutely reason to hope that Hawaiian birds can recover.

Also, Hawaii birder Lance Tanino joins me to talk about just how you are supposed to pronounce the names of those native Hawaiian birds.

Thanks to Rockjumper Birding Tours for supporting the podcast!
