    About This Project

    Oikonos Ecosystem Knowledge

    Wedge-tailed Shearwater chicks are attracted to lights and grounded due to collisions with utility wires / posts and hit by cars. Since 2011, we have surveyed a coastal highway during fledging (Nov-Dec) and have documented grounded shearwaters. We will use this 5-year baseline to test if deaths increase or decrease after the installation of new highway LED lights. This study will reveal whether the lights being replaced throughout Hawaii will impact these native seabirds.
