Volunteer at the Marine Mammal Center

As part of The Marine Mammal Center’s work to save the Hawaiian monk seal, the Center opened a state-of-the-art hospital and visitor center on the Big Island of Hawai‘i. The hospital has rehabilitation areas for seal pups, pens and pools for juveniles, quarantine areas and medical facilities. Of the approximately 1,400 monk seals researchers estimate remain in the wild, nearly 30 percent are alive today directly due to conservation efforts led by NOAA and partners like The Marine Mammal Center.

You can contribute to the conservation of Hawaiian monk seals by keeping a safe distance and calling 808-987-0765 if you see a sick, injured or orphaned monk seal on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Aloha! I’m a real estate agent on the wonderful and amazing Big Island of Hawaii. I live up the hill from Keauhou Bay, just south of downtown Kailua-Kona. I love to help people. If I can be of assistance, get in touch.
