You may have been lucky enough to see a pueo swooping by at dusk, when these endangered endemic owls like to hunt. But their numbers are declining, and not enough is known about them to help their recovery. Laura Luther, M.S. candidate in Natural Resources and Environmental Management, defends her master’s thesis, “Factors Influencing the Distribution of the Hawaiian Short-eared Owl (Pueo).”
How are humans impacting the amazing corals in the ocean with runoff and other stressors? Find out at Anita Tsang’s defense of her master’s thesis proposal, “Using an endemic Hawaiian soft coral, Sarcothelia edmondsoni, as a bioindicator of freshwater input and anthropogenic influence.”
