Are you dedicated to preserving our natural habitat? Put that energy into action by volunteering with Hawai'i Wildlife Fund's research or conservation Volunteer with Hawaii Wildlife Fundprojects. HWF volunteers work side-by-side in the field with trained staff members, helping to protect animals and their habitat.
Through your help, HWF works to ensure that sea turtle hatchlings emerge from their nest. They help monitor nesting beaches, educate the public and track our sea turtle mothers after they return to sea. HWF's Monk Seal Watch helps ensure that these critically endangered animals that are resting onshore receive the privacy they need.
