Volunteers That Count!
Over two dozen volunteers and visitors gathered once again at Pu’ukohola Heiau National Historic Site for the 2013 Sanctuary Ocean Count this morning (2/23/13). The park is one of more than sixty such sites scattered throughout the Hawaiian Islands where volunteers help monitor humpback whales. This community program is conducted by the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary (NOAA). The final volunteer event for this year’s count will be on the last Saturday of March. Not in Hawaii? You can listen to the same humpback whales that we get to see sing live!
