The Kauaʻi Endangered Seabird Recovery Project (KESRP) is administered through the Pacific Studies Co-operative Unit of the Research Corporation of the University of Hawaiʻi. Formed in 2006, the project focuses primarily on the three endangered seabirds found on the island of Kauaʻi – Newell’s Shearwater (Puffinus newelli), Hawaiian Petrel (Pterodroma sandwichensis), and Band-rumped Storm-Petrel (Oceanodroma castro). Our work involves identifying the breeding distribution of these rare and enigmatic seabirds, monitoring their breeding colonies, undertaking research projects to better understand their life histories and the various threats which they face, and working with partner projects and organizations to ensure their long-term conservation.
The Underline Monitoring Project (UMP) is a sub-project within the Kauai Endangered Seabird Recovery Project (KESRP), and has multiple related research avenues: 1) determine where and to what extent seabirds hit power lines or are grounded by lights, 2) identify environmental and behavioral predictors of power line collision and grounding, and 3) conduct experiments testing the efficacy of minimization strategies. Brief descriptions of the methods used to achieve these three overarching goals are described on our website https://kauaiseabirdproject.org/underline-monitoring-research/
