Abstract: The objective of this project was to formulate a plan for a comprehensive research program to study the rare and endangered birds found in Hawai'i's national parks, with emphasis on the research needed to develop sound resource management policies. Ongoing research is described and the additional research needed to develop a comprehensive program is identified. Suggestions are offered for meeting these research needs, and the appropriate role of the National Park Service in supporting such research is discussed. Two problems of special concern to the National Park Service are addressed: 1. It is recommended that one or more NPS representatives in Hawaii appointed to the Fish and Wildlife Service recovery team for the Hawaiian Crow, since Hawaii Volcanoes National Park should be involved in the recovery program. 2. It seems unlikely that large-scale propagation projects, involving captive breeding populations with subsequent release of offspring, will play a significant role in the preservation of endangered Hawaiian birds, especially the honeycreeper. Therefore, it is recommended that NPS resources not be used for construction of extensive facilities for captive propagation projects.
