In our last blog we discussed the majestic humpback whales. This week we are going to discuss an organization that helps keep these endangered species safe while in the Hawaiian waters. Whale Trust Maui is a non-profit organization committed to educating the public about marine life safety.
Whale Trust’s mission is to promote, support, and conduct scientific research on whales. Their vision is to help create a world that is more knowledgeable about whales. In February 2015, Whale Trust Maui is hosting a four-day event for Whale enthusiasts. Whale Tales will take place Friday, February 13th until Monday the 16th.
Below is the tentative schedule of events to take place:
- Friday, February 13th, from 5pm to 7pm, is the opening reception at the Historic Pioneer Inn.
- Saturday and Sunday, from 10am to 4pm, various presentations will be held in The Maui Theatre.
- Monday, February 16th, all day, benefit whale watches are to depart from the Lahaina Harbor.
While this event is free of charge, donations are still needed in order to continue supporting whale research on Maui. Hawaii Ocean Project is a proud sponsor of all that this organization does for marine life conservation. If you are interested in sponsorship visit whaletrust.org for more details.
