Maui News recently published a feature article titled: “Native Species Recovering at Mokio Preserve on Molokai”

Pictured is Jay Penniman of the Maui Nui Seabird Recovery Project as he sets up an acoustic monitor near the Laysan albatross decoys at the Mokio Preserve on Molokai. The speaker in the foreground broadcasts mating calls for the very rare Laysan albatross during the day, while acoustic monitors record nighttime activity from other seabird species like the wedge-tailed shearwater.
