Volunteer and help the Pueo

There are a variety of ways you can help conserve the Pueo. A citizen scientist can report sightings, participate in organized surveys and use photography to document behaviors, breeding phenology, prey items and more. ​ If you are interested in becoming a citizen scientist you may review the Volunteer Information Form and begin your path as citizen scientist! 

If you are interested in contributing to the Pueo Project and prefer to be a casual observer, please submit observations to the Pueo Project through the websites: eBird or iNaturalist. Please include photos with your observation. To submit observations visit:



Both of these sites are a great tool for wildlife and bird identification and information.

If you can commit 8 hours biweekly to the Pueo Project please contact us via pueoproject@gmail.com with "Pueo Volunteer Program" as the subject, your name, contact information and prior experience with wildlife or bird surveys and hiking ability. 

Depending on your preference, you can submit a pueo sighting through a web app, form, eBird or iNaturalist database. Mahalo!

If you have seen a Pueo... please contribute to our project by sending your sighting!
