PRINCEVILLE — Dr. Andre Raine, project manager for the Kauai Endangered Seabird Recovery Project, will be the keynote speaker later this month at the Dotty Nakea Memorial Speaker Program sponsored by the Friends of the North Shore Library at Princeville.
Raine will talk on addressing the challenges of research and conservation at 5 p.m. Nov. 29 a the Princeville Public Library.
Kauai is the last main refuge in the world for the endemic Newell’s shearwater, as well as holding internationally important populations of two other endemic species — the Hawaiian petrel and the band-rumped storm-petrel.
The Kauai Endangered Seabird Recovery Project conducts research on all three species and undertakes a wide range of conservation initiatives to help protect them and reverse their declines.
The program is free.
