The annual humpback whale count takes place January 28, February 25 and March 31 on the Big Island, Kauai and Oahu. Even if you don’t have time to come to Hawaii right now, or haven’t found your perfect Hawaii travel deal yet, you can still help. So read on.
Volunteers are needed to keep watch of whale behavior, complete a site map and spread awareness about humpback whales in Hawaii. If you’re in the islands during the whale count, this is a great opportunity to mix with locals and other visitors. You’ll likely make some new friends. Plan to see us there too and as this will be both fun and fascinating.
If you can’t be here during whale count you can still help with a donation to this worthwhile cause. Another way to show support is to purchase a 2012 whale count t-shirt or Hawaii music CD dedicated to ocean conservation.
Please sign up to be a volunteer on NOAA’s Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale site.
