40th Anniversary Online Auction

Thursday, October 29th - Monday, November 9th

As the world collectively navigates the stormy waters of the COVID-19 pandemic, Pacific Whale Foundation has remained fervently committed to educating the public, especially our children, about marine wildlife and its ocean habitat. By pivoting to a virtual delivery system, PWF’s Education Department has successfully conducted Ocean Camps that inspire our youth to become the ocean protectors of tomorrow; provided informative webcasts on the nonprofit’s social media platforms; initiated the Plastic Pollution Solution campaign; and continued planning for future educational programs, such as Keiki Whalewatch and others.

The online auction portion of PWF’s 40th Anniversary celebration is extremely important in securing the funding that allows Pacific Whale Foundation to further its educational goals and mission to protect the ocean through science and advocacy and inspire environmental stewardship. Thanks to generous donations from local businesses and individuals, the online auction offers a safe way to purchase unique and highly desired items while supporting PWF’s education programs.
