For Pacific Islanders, all sealife is linked to existence. And All fishing, which is predominate offshore, makes many species of seabirds crucial to finding schools of life sustaining tuna. They go hand in hand.  I know this personally having spent many days at sea in my life, watching and searching for flocks of seabirds that indicate feeding tuna. Presented here are some of my wildlife sculptures done over a twenty year period starting in 1999.
