Example Google Sheet Document to Help you Make the Graphs
You need to enter your bird names and the populations, distances traveled, and when they are nesting. These are all hypothetical #'s/data to give you an idea of what you could do.
1. Create a bar graph showing their population on Maui, in Hawaii, and World Wide. When data is not available it does not need to be included.
2. Create a bar graph or scatter plot indicating how far each of the species travels.

3. Create a bar graph indicating when each of the species is nesting.
What are the major threats to seabirds?
Which seabirds migrate extremely far and which ones stay close? Which species tells Hawaiian Navigators they are getting close to shore?
What was most interesting to your group? Did you learn anything new?
