Not only has this proven to be a fun volunteer activity for residents and visitors, but it also helps to provide important information on humpback whales around the Hawaiian Islands.
Both site leaders and general volunteers are needed for all islands.
Of course, the count cannot be done without the help of enthusiastic volunteers - we hope you'll consider taking part in this fun opportunity.
