Review for Pacific Whale Foundation, Wailuku, HI, USA
I have been involved with this organization for more than 10 years and can only say great things about them. I've helped with their marine education programs for local schoolchidren on Maui. You might think of Maui as a rich place, but there are many families who are scraping by, even with parents working two jobs in the hotel industry. Thanks to Pacific Whale Foundation, these kids get to go out on the ocean to view whales and other marine wildlife and learn about conservation. Pacific Whale Foundation also built an Ocean Discovery Center with classrooms and lab equipment for school classes; their staff does a great job with leading hands-on science programs. Pacific Whale Foundation also has research projects to study whales in Hawaii, Australia and Ecuador, and a study of wild dolphins and toothed whales in Hawaii. They are a hard-working, dedicated group of people who are really passionate about protecting the oceans.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
marine education programs and community events.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
establish a branch of Pacifc Whale Foundation in every town that is located on or near the ocean.
