The Pacific Seabird Group will hold its 38th Annual Meeting on the island of Oahu, Hawai'i, over 7-10 February 2012.
Attendees at the PSG meeting should have the opportunity to see some North Pacific albatrosses up close for themselves, as Laysan Albatrosses P. immutabilis breed on Oahu in the Ka'ena Point Natural Area Refuge, a site open to the public, and which is now protected by a predator-proof fence.

Breeding Laysan Albatrosses can also be viewed at the Kīlauea Point National Wildlife Refuge on the nearby Hawaiian island of Kauai.
