About Whale Trust Maui:
Whale Trust Maui is a Maui-based non-profit organization whose mission is to promote, support, and conduct scientific research on whales and the marine environment, and broadly communicate the findings to the public. Its founders are passionate scientists and explorers who believe that science—the quest for answers to the most intriguing questions about our natural world—lies at the heart of environmental education and conservation. Whale Trust Maui’s research programs focus on exploring the natural communication, behavior patterns, and social organization of whales. But Whale Trust Maui seeks to do more than fund groundbreaking field research on our earth’s largest marine mammals. Results from Whale Trust Maui’s field research are the basis for a broader program of outreach and education that involve the public, educators, and a new generation of researchers whom Whale Trust Maui hopes to inspire.
