    Crew members of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Kukui and wildlife preservation experts help prepare endangered Laysan ducks for translocation Sept. 3, 2014, at Kure Atoll, Hawaii. The U.S. Coast Guard partnered with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Geological Survey, Washington State, The Wildlife Center and the State of Hawaii to translocate 28 endangered Laysan ducks to Kure Atoll. Kure Atoll is an ideal habitat for the ducks to live, providing them with dense vegetated cover, lots of arthropods to eat, freshwater and no rats or mammalian predators.
