Climate models predict that global average sea level may rise considerably this century, potentially affecting species that rely on coastal habitat. The Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI) have high conservation value due to their concentration of endemic, endangered and threatened species, and large numbers of nesting seabirds. Most of these islands are low-lying and therefore potentially vulnerable to increases in global average sea level. We explored the potential for habitat loss in the… CONTINUE READING
