The Great Whale Count is a citizens' count of humpback whales that can be seen from Maui’s shores, led by Pacific Whale Foundation’s research team. The public is invited to assist in this annual count. All training and materials are provided, and it’s a great way to learn about whales and whale research. There's no cost to participate. When you sign up, our team will help you select an available counting site that's convenient to you. The counting at each site will be led by a Pacific Whale Foundation staff person or site leader. Counters meet at 8 am; the count will be finished by noon. To volunteer, email Michelle Viengkone at michelleviengkone@pacificwhale.org. Please include your name, daytime or cell phone number, the number of people in your group, their ages, and where you will be staying on Maui, so that the research team can assign you to the most convenient counting location.  Pacific Whale Foundation’s research team will contact you with information about your assignment.
