Hawai‘i Lab

Wedge-tailed shearwaters in Hawaii

Oikonos is leading a research and educational partnership to study and conserve Hawaiian seabirds and their habitats, on land and at sea.

This collaboration is focused on the Hawai‘i Pacific University Pelagicos Lab, at the Oceanic Institute, on Waimanalo (O‘ahu). Since 2008, we have mentored five graduate and six undergraduate students engaged in applied research projects. These efforts have, to date, contributed to four MS theses, six independent research projects and three publications. Five projects are currently under way.
