We invite you to contribute your time and talents in support of Pacific Whale Foundation, by becoming a Pacific Whale Foundation Volunteer.
Volunteers assist at our many community events, help out in our membership area and lend a hand with our education, research and conservaton programs. They accumulate credits that are good toward discounts at Pacific Whale Foundation's Ocean Stores and free tickets on our Pacific Whale Foundation Eco-Adventures.
Volunteers have the opportunity to attend free classes about the marine environment and special training programs. It's a great way to get to know our staff and meet others who share your interest in protecting the ocean environment.
To learn more about volunteering at Pacific Whale Foundation, please call our Membership, Giving and Volunteer Office at (808) 856-8320.
Or sign up today through our online volunteer registration and scheduling system:
- Sign-up for volunteering
- Click on “I would like to volunteer for this organization" and create your own username and password. Please do not choose any projects or events -- yet.
- We will send you a confirmation that your username and password have been accepted, and you can log back in, to select the events and shifts that you want.

You can simply enter that information and choose your events and shifts. Don't worry if you’ve forgotten your password -- there’s an option to regenerate it.
Volunteering on Vacation
Pacific Whale Foundation also offers many outdoor volunteering opportunities through our Volunteering on Vacation program. Through this program, we work in partnership with other nonprofit organizations, the National Parks Service and community groups to offer you a calendar of volunteer opportuntities that contribute to efforts to protect Maui's environment.
Volunteer for three or more hours and receive a free Volunteering on Vacation Maui tote bag.
