Ever wonder what happens to shearwaters and albatross when they leave Kaua’i? What they eat, where they go and how they find a mate?
Dr. Lisa Ballance, a marine ecologist, will explore those questions in a public lecture Feb. 7 at Kilauea Neighborhood Center. The free program will begin at 7 p.m.
Ballance studies seabirds and marine mammals, including whales and pelicans.
Emergency alert test Thursday
The state’s monthly test of the civil defense emergency alert system is scheduled for 11:45 a.m. Thursday.
A steady 45-second tone on sirens, in an actual emergency, alerts the public to a life and property-threatening emergency. People can get instructions from civil defense agencies via radio and television. Standing instructions also are printed in telephone books.
Siren tests are usually the first working day of each month.

The capsule, a project of Hawai’i Millennium Commission, was sealed and will be kept at the governor’s office until being reopened in 2025.
