Manu-o-Kū in Schools
The Hui Manu-o-Kū is a group of conservationists and citizens that all have one thing in common: an interest and admiration for White Terns, or manu-o-Kū. This group has formed to ensure that the official bird of Honolulu is taken care of and watched after. Manu-o-Kū is a very unique bird, especially for an urban center like Honolulu. We developed a citizen science initiative to help track the growing population in the city. Together, the Hui Manu-o-Kū and citizen scientists will ensure that the population is protected and cared for, so that they continue to thrive in Honolulu.
Schools can help! Students and teachers become citizen scientists and can help take care of the manu-o-Kū
