Soaring HI: Celebrating the Adventures of People and Birds

Those who may be headed to Honolulu the weekend have the opportunity to attend Soaring HI: Celebrating the Adventures of People and Birds, an all-day film festival featuring the unique, quirky, fun, and heart-warming relationships we have with our feathered friends.

The Saturday, Oct 29, event at the Doris Duke Theatre, Honolulu Museum of Art, will also include a  panel discussions presented by Hawai‘i bird experts, and visits with local native bird conservation groups.

This free event is presented in association with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Migratory Bird Treaty Centennial, celebrating 100 years of migratory bird conservation.

The first Migratory Bird Treaty with Great Britain was signed in 1916 and, combined with the three others with Japan, Russia, and Mexico, forms the cornerstone of the effort to conserve birds across the nation and here in Hawai‘i.

Many of our native birds are protected under these treaties and we are celebrating locally with various events across the state and throughout the year.
