Become a Citizen Scientist with Pacific Whale Foundation
Any Day - Any Time
Participate in Pacific Whale Foundation's marine debris citizen science research by simply cleaning up a coastal area of your choosing and filling out a data sheet recording what debris items are collected. This data allows our researchers to expand their data set and analyze the trends and patterns of debris on Maui's beaches and shores, in order to reduce coastal debris at the source. Pick up your supplies (recycled grain bag & datasheet) at Pacific Whale Foundation's Ocean Stores, or at participating retailers - Maui Brewing Company or Three's Restaurant. Data sheets can also be printed online and submitted at pacificwhale.org/conservation/marine-debris. This is a great way for visitors or residents to explore a coastal area of Maui while helping to protect its environment. It's also a fun, educational activity for keiki!
