Wild Lens board member Joey Leibrecht recently attended a Conservation Career day event at University of Hawaii at Hilo. Joey helped run a booth representing the Hawaii Forest Bird Demographic Project. He created two excellent videos for the event to show kids the banding process and to give them an introduction to the native Hawaii Forest Birds. They also had a mist net being displayed as well as a variety of the banding equipment that is used in the field. It was fun day connecting with the younger generation and spreading the word about a great conservation opportunity! Check out the videos that Joey produced for the event below.
