2014 Whale Tales Challenge Match

We are pleased to announce that the Makana Aloha Foundation has generously challenged Whale Trust Maui to raise $20,000 for Whale Tales 2014! Please help us meet our goal by becoming a sponsor or donating today! Sponsorships start at $500 and entitle you to premium seating, invitations to special events and much more!

Summer Drone Drive

Help us raise $20,000 this summer to fund our new oceanus drone initiative! Drones can advance our research in profoundly meaningful ways including measuring whales to determine how size/age affects social behavior, recording aerial and underwater sequences of interactions to assess whale relationships within social groups and determining the sex, health and/or reproductive status of an individual by collecting DNA, bacteria and/or hormones from the exhalation of a whale. Make a donation today and help us use drones in our 2014 research season!
