For the last couple of years my research on ethics, extinction and conservation has focused on Hawai’i, and the Hawaiian crow (or alala) in particular. I seem to have accumulated a fair few articles and book chapters that are waiting on publication so I’ve done up a little page on this site to give some indication of what I’ve been up to. You can find more details here.
The picture to the right is the view from the back porch of the house we stayed in while doing fieldwork on the Big Island in early 2013. We were near the summit of Kilauea where it’s cold and rainy most of the time (at least in my experience) and quite a drive from the beach. But who wants beaches when you can have this spectacular forest?
