On April 17, all over the Hawaiian Islands, volunteers will be counting monk seals—and they could use your help!
The semi-annual count, coordinated by NOAA Fisheries, only happens 2 times a year. All islands participate on the same day at the exact same time to get a snapshot of monk seal numbers in Hawaiʻi and their locations.
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:
