Counting Whales in Kauai
Will you be in the Islands during peak whale season? If so, consider taking part in the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary’s Ocean Count.
Both Hawaii residents and visitors are invited to take part in the whale-watching volunteer project slated for 8 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. on three Saturdays, Jan. 28, Feb. 25 and March 31 on the shores of Oahu, Kauai and the Big Island.
The annual count, which started in 2002, relies on volunteer help to estimate whale population and distribution figures in the sanctuary. The census, organized by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, doesn’t yield scientifically accurate results, but it does supplement scientific information.
