When Europeans brought cats to Hawai‘i, they probably had no idea what havoc would result. Last year alone, officials at a Hawaiian refuge discovered that cats had killed at least 237 endangered birds, including Hawaiian Stilt and Hawaiian Common Gallinule. Endangered Newell’s Shearwater (shown) is another victim of cat attacks.

Secures More Habitat
for Rare Tanagers

The ‎Tanagers Reserve in Colombia provides habitat for a huge number of species found nowhere else in the world. Named for two rare tanagers, the Gold-ringed and the Black-and-gold (shown), the reserve has now expanded by more than 900 acres thanks to a collaboration among partners, including ABC.
