Kiwikiu (Maui Parrotbill; Pseudonestor xanthophrys) are the most critically endangered of the Hawaiian Honeycreepers on Maui. Their population may only number a few hundred.
Hawai’i has suffered wider-spread extinctions than anywhere else on the planet. Without effective intervention, Kiwikiu could join this long list of birds that are now gone forever.
Much of Maui was once covered by native forests that are now gone. Rebuilding these areas will not only provide habitat for native Hawaiian species but will also restore these watersheds.
For Hawaiʻiʻs native bird species, time is crucial. Your contributions go directly to preventing further extinctions of forest birds on Maui and to rebuilding Maui’s forests. We have big goals and visions for preserving Maui’s biodiversity and together we can put extinction in the past.Make a Donation
