Virtual 5th Hawai’i Island Festival of Birds
October 15 - October 19Free
The Hawai‘i Island Festival of Birds (HIFB) 2020 is virtual event due to precautions and uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and travel restrictions to Hawai’i this year. Festival content will be launched on the HIFB website at the start of the Festival on October 15 and will run through October 19. Participants do not need to register or pay fees to attend.
There will be bird challenges and guest speaker videos posted each day throughout the festival week as well as opportunities to win prizes including HIFB Virtual 2020 stickers and care packages mailed from Hawai’i to your home. This year’s theme is “Wanderers and Migrants.” Guest speaker video talks will highlight many of the pelagic, migrant, and vagrant species that visit the main Hawaiian Islands and that thrive in Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument.
HIFB Virtual 2020 is managed by the Hawai‘i Wildlife Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the mission of protecting, conserving, and aiding in the recovery of Hawaii’s native wildlife through hands-on treatment, research, training, science education, and cultural programs.
