Hob Osterlund: Lecture and Book Signing

Date/Time

Nov 9, 2019
05:00 PM until 06:30 PM

Description

Join us for a special lecture with award-winning conservationist & author Hob Osterlund!

 

Albatross have likely nested in the Hawaiian Islands for millions of years, but disappeared with the arrival of humans more than a thousand years ago. A few decades ago, individual birds began returning to Kaua'i, and the population has gradually grown since then. Now, as their mother ship at Midway Atoll in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands becomes more and more treacherous, Kaua'i may become the birds' Noah's Ark.

Hob Osterlund, APRN, is an award-winning writer, photographer and conservationist living on the island of Kaua'i. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, National Geographic Explorer, Audubon, National Wildlife, Nature Conservancy, Hana Hou (Hawaiian Airlines), Ms. Magazine and more. She is the author of Holy Moli: Albatross and Other Ancestors (Oregon State University Press) now in its fourth printing. She is the founder of the Kaua'i Albatross Network and has served as a habitat liaison for a number of private landowners for several years. Her work includes direct services such as systematic monitoring of all Laysan albatross on those properties, assisting with predator control and serving as a link between private landowners and state and federal wildlife agencies. For five nesting seasons 2014-2018 Hob worked as a Kaua'i Coordinator for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology "TrossCam" project. In her presentation, Hob will be showing her award-winning documentary "Kalama's Journey" and exploring what she's learned about the meaning of the moli (albatross) in Hawaiian culture.

After the lecture, Hob will be signing copies of Holy Moli. Please join us for this special event.
