Voyagers of the Sky
with Dr. Robert Shallenberger

6:00 - 7:30 p.m. | Atherton Hālau
Members FREE; General Admission: $10
Come listen to renowned conservation biologist and wildlife photographer, Dr. Robert Shallenberger, as he gives an illuminating talk on our fine feathered friends and voyagers of the Hawaiian skies. Two dozen seabird species call Hawai'i home, while ranging widely across the Pacific Ocean and beyond. These birds are finely adapted to their terrestrial, aquatic and aerial environment. This discussion will focus on their natural history and their complex cultural connection with the people who share their home.
Dr. Shallenberger is a conservation biologist and wildlife photographer who has conducted research, led ecotours and managed several seabird colonies. His photographs have appeared in many magazines and books, including Na Manu Kai – Hawaiian Birds of the Sea., published by University of Hawaii Press.
