There is nothing more inspiring than seeing a once extinct in the wild species back in their natural habitat! Check out these Hawaiian crows, also known as ʻAlalā, flying through their native forests!🐦 | Repost @alalaproject | Aloha all ʻAlalā friends and followers! Have you ever heard of the term "as the crow flies"? While this term usually refers to a measure of distance in a straight line, we wanted to share with you what a Hawaiian forest looks and sounds like, as the ʻAlalā flies within it! The ʻAlalā that are release candidates are moved from the conservation breeding center where they are hatched and raised, to a flight conditioning aviary located within the reserve before they are released. This is an important step in the reintroduction process to help them acclimate to their surroundings, as well as to help build up the muscles they will need in order to make long flights after release.The birds that were released in 2017 have started to explore the forest gradually, and one of the field members recently captured this footage of two ʻAlalā in flight, above the forest kipuka. What an inspiring sight to see and hear the ʻAlalā flying again in the forests! E hoʻolāʻau hou ka ʻAlalā! #alala #Hawaii #Hawaiian #Hawaiiancrow #crow #bird #birding #endextinction #hope #conservation #USA #island #islandconservation #wildlifeconservation #wildlife #forest #fly #animals

We're delighted to share the news that the eleven ‘Alalā released into a Hawai‘i Island Natural Area Reserve (NAR) last Sept/Oct are thriving. The endangered birds are being closely monitored and have been seen foraging on native plants. The aversion training may be helping as well, as they have been observed avoiding their natural predator, the native Hawaiian Hawk, or ‘Io. Photo credit: San Diego Zoo Global

Getting schooled by @swiftcrow on crows today. This is why I love the internet. You don’t know what you don’t know till someone come along and shows you something new. And there is a lot I don’t know. I’m about to go down a rabbit hole.
***note*** my last post wasn’t a crow at all, it was a raven. And before today I didn’t know the difference. But the symbolism regarding the crow was legit.

From Wikipedia:
On September 26, 2017, 6 crows were released into the wild. In contrast to the previous release, the group released was made of 4 males and 2 females rather than just males. On October 11, 2017, another group of 5 crows, 3 males and 2 females, was also released into the area. The first group introduced also formed social groups similar to those expected of the species, and also responded to stressors in the environment, showing awareness of surroundings. The 2017 birds seem to be doing significantly better in the wild than those introduced in 2016.

We can’t think of a better way to bring in the New Year than the sounds of the formerly extinct in the wild #ʻAlalā aka Hawaiian crow 🐦back in their natural habitat. This bird has a special place in our hearts as our founder worked with them and it was one of many experiences that made her want to create @keyconservation. We look forward to putting our mission in motion in 2018 and encourage you all to sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date with our progress. We can’t wait to make moments like this possible through our app.🐦| Repost @alalaproject | Aloha all ʻAlalā friends and followers! Have you ever wondered what an ʻAlalā sounds like? The ʻAlalā were (and are again!), by far, the loudest bird in Hawaiian forests and have a wide variety of calls. In the Hawaiian language, the word " ʻAlalā" is a term that has been used to describe a style of chant to further project one's voice, a messenger in battle that called out the chiefʻs commands, or the cry of a baby. We wanted to share some footage that the monitoring crew took recently, so you may hear what the forests sound like with ʻAlalā in them again! #wildforalala #ehoolaauhoukaalala #Hawaii #island #USA #crow #Hawaiian #Hawaiiancrow #bird #birding #birds #forest #birdsong #song #nature #endextinction #endangered #wildlife #conservation #wildlifebiologist #wildlifeconservation #hope #KeyConservation

We are both used to setbacks. In your space
Race you lost three astronauts on the launchpad,
The pure oxygen willing fire into existence like an
Angry volcano god. We lost three juveniles during
Our species reintroduction on the Big Island; hawks
Collared two, the third died of starvation. Even your
Latest tech could not stop this elemental combustion;
GPS & VHF transmitters, our backs were Kevlar rigged
For a spacewalk that lasted a few weeks. The survivors
Were rescued, plans altered. You use tools & so do we.
You’ll launch us higher up the mountain into the cloud
Forest where predators can’t fly, the altitude leaving their
Wings grasping nothing. You’ll spend more time teaching
Us too; how to be crow. How to pick friend from foe.

Happy Fa-‘Alalā Days!! Love this gift from the staff at Keauhou Bird Conservation Center! I am thankful for the time I have been able to spend here with the ‘Alalā and all the little forest birds. 😊 #merrychristmas #hawaii #bigisland #alala #hawaiiancrow #olapa

Today I played Santa with our Alala, they all got ginger leaf wrapped presents! Can you guess what’s inside? 🎁🐁 #Alala #hawaiiancrow #himalayanginger #christmaseve

Feral predators and habitat loss drove the Hawaii's alala, or Hawaiian crow, to extinction in the wild in 2002 . But that was not the end... San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy started a complex breeding and reintroduction programme, in partnership with other institutions, and the first captive-bred individuals have now been released into the wild. There is still a long way to go but, for now, the future looks promising for this species!

Shoutout to all of the conservationists who dress up to help save wildlife even when Halloween is over! Check out the work being done for the critically endangered ʻAlalā @alalaproject | Repost @alalaproject |🐦Costumes arenʻt just for Halloween when working with ʻAlalā! Costumes play many different roles in the work we do. While the birds are being raised in conservation breeding facilities, the person taking care of them will wear a costume and feed them using a puppet that looks like an adult ʻAlalā. These steps help to reduce the risk of the birds imprinting on humans, or thinking that humans are their parents. Costumes are also worn when taking care of the released ʻAlalā. This is to help reduce the risk of ʻAlalā becoming habituated, or too comfortable around humans, and associating humans with food. Lastly, we use costumes to help with educating people of all ages about ʻAlalā at public events and in the classrooms we visit. On this day of costume wearing, know that we too, are wearing costumes to do the very best for the ʻAlalā! #wildforalala #Hawaiiancrow #crow #Hawaii #Hawaiian #bird #birds #conservation #wildlifeconservation #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifebiologist #captivebreeding #nature #babyanimals #costume #Halloween #endextinction #endangered #hope #KeyConservation

Hawaiian Crow - The Extinction Series !!!THIS SPECIES IS EXTINCT IN THE WILD!!! The declining numbers started when the white farmer came to Hawaii in 1890. Back then the Hawaiian Crow or Alala was spread all over the hawaiian islands. Since 1891 they were seen as a plague and were tricked and shot by farmers imitating the Alalas call. At the beginning of the 20th century the big Alala swarms disappeared. The Hawaiian Crow used to eat the fruits of the koa acacia and other berries which were replaced by imported plants changing their lifes. Imported animal species like the Gold Dust Mangoes and the changed food offer lead to bird deseases and a further dramatical decline. By 1996 there were only 14 Alalas existing and 1999 only 3. In 2002 the last remaining wild Alalas disappeared from the Hakalau Forest National Wildlife Refuge, their breeding place. Since the 1970s the Hawaiian Crow was also bred in captivity. In 1996 there were 15 birds in captivity. An attempt to release 24 Alalas in 1998 failed due to new threats like the Hawaiian Buzzard and the dragged bird malaria, 18 birds died. Till 2016 the population grew up to 131 Hawaiian Crows (in captivity). #theextinctionseries

Six young Hawaiian crows (or Alalā) have been released into Pu'u Maka'ala Natural Area Reserve on Hawaii island after being housed in an aviary. The group of critically endangered birds was made up of 2 females and 4 males when released they showed a keen interest in their new surroundings and it will be interesting to see if they begin to thrive after some previous releases have not done well. The Alalā has been extinct in the wild since 2002, having survived only because of the Maui Bird Conservation centres managed by San Diego zoo. A total of 125 birds now live at the center and it is decided to try and release them back into the wild. A second release group of set to be freed around mid October, consisting of 3 males and 2 females. The newly released birds were trained to respond and deal better with natural predators such as Hawks which often prey on bird and species such as these. Successful conservation programs aim to release the birds through species-introduction transitions so that the birds are accustomed to the native species after spending long periods of time in captivity. Alalā are an important part of Hawaiian forests and when properly reintroduced will play a key role in the local ecosystem and its recovery. Work will be long and hard to release this species but it is wished for their efforts to pay off in the end, it shows the determination and teamwork of groups and agencies that are working endlessly to save and protect this species. "The recovery of the Alalā is an excellent example of partners working together to do something that has never been done before." #usoa #u_s_o_a #universalsocietyofanimals #news #animals #animal #animalkingdom #nature #wild #wildlife #conservation #hawaii #hawaiian #bird #crow #hawaiiancrow #alala #alalā #species #forest #Maui #sandiegozoo #sos #saveourspecies

In one week eleven #HawaiianCrow will be released in the wild. They have now been taught to be aware of the #HawaiianHawk their predator that killed two previous ones. @visit.hawaii #illustrations #natureillustration #hawaii #botanicalillustration pdlcbotanica.com
