Monk Seals at Koki Beach, Maui

On April 17, all over the Hawaiian Islands, volunteers will be counting monk seals—and they could use your help!

What:  7th Semi-annual Main Hawaiian Islands Monk Seal Count
When:  Saturday, April 17th, 10AM – 1PM
Who:  Any interested volunteers must attend a pre-count meeting—meetings are scheduled on each island this week and next—contact your island’s coordinator to RSVP:

Maui and Lanaʻi—
Kauaʻi—(808) 651-7668
Big Island—(808) 756-5961
