Lahaina Wildfire

One-Year Anniversary Matching Campaign

After the fires that took place on Maui on August 8th, Pacific Whale Foundation did not hesitate to help our affected community. Knowing that the recovery process was going to be long, the outreach team was created. A carefully selected group of individuals from within the organization focused on supporting the community’s needs, prioritizing frontline relief. We operated our ʻOhana center hub for two months. Every day we reassess where we can make the largest impact. In late 2023, our focus shifted to supplying the community hubs with specifically requested supplies.

Marine debris is essentially any human-created waste found in ocean environments. Most of this debris originates from land-based sources, such as someone thoughtlessly discarding a cigarette butt or soda can. Plastics and other materials that resist natural degradation comprise a large degree of marine debris and are of particular concern. GIVE
