Congratulations to UH Mānoa for being recognized as a 2017 Tree Campus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. The campus received this honor for its "commitment to effective urban forest management and for engaging staff and students in conservation goals". The Hui would like to thank UH Mānoa for its efforts in keeping the campus a favorable place for White Terns. The Hui, with the help of our many citizen scientists, have documented 99 trees on campus that have hosted nesting terns! This is one of the most densely populated areas for White Terns on Oahu.
If you are a student, faculty member, or someone who spends time on the UH Mānoa campus, you too can help us monitor White Terns on campus. You can visit our Citizen Science page or email firstname.lastname@example.org to submit observations of nesting White Terns. You can see all of the trees where we have documented nesting White Terns on campus by visiting our manu-o-Kū Breeding Range Map, or you can see all active nest sites on campus by visiting our Active Nest Map.
