Fight or Flight


Fight or Flight, featured in the Migration issue of FLUX Hawaii, examines the birds of the Hawaiian-Emperor archipelago of atolls and islands. Due to climate change, these birds are becoming endangered. On Maui, a group of avian scientists are working to (temporarily) capture, tag and catalog the flights of these birds in an effort to protect them.

Fight or Flight was recognized at the 2017 Pele Awards and won a Gold award for “Best Syndicated Content for a Digital Publication”

The story, complete with bird call samples and a short film by Philip Lemoine documenting the scientists, can be read here.
