Hawaii Marine Animal Response (HMAR) is the largest Hawaii-based nonprofit marine species conservation and response organization. They work on the islands of Oahu and Molokai with our team of dedicated volunteers, interns and staff that are supported by private donations, corporate funding and government grants. They strive to achieve our mission through activity every day of the year that impacts our key objectives: (1) growing active and engaged community support, (2) managing and increasing protected species populations, and (3) saving animals that need help. Thousands of times each year, their outreach, field response, interventions, rescue and stranding support activities help us move towards our vision of Hawaii’s ocean ecosystem shared in sustainable harmony by humans and protected marine animals such as Hawaiian monk seals, sea turtles and seabirds.
