The Pacific Whale Foundation (PWF) is a unique environmental organization. It just doesn’t talk about whales and dolphins, it actually studies and protects them first-hand. Their research efforts helped create marine sanctuaries in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States; save dolphins from deadly fishing practices in South America; and establish whalewatching as a replacement for whale killing.
The PWF currently does research projects in Hawaii and Australia that involve educating the public about marine mammals as well as protecting them in the wild. PWF is recognized worldwide as a pioneer and leader in non-invasive marine research. The long-term field studies of whales, dolphins, turtles and reef eco-systems allow them to monitor changes in the status of threatened or endangered species. Their headquarters is located in Kihei, Maui, Hawaii, where they have stores that help the costs of the research projects. A certain percentage of sales go to the funding of PWF research. To help funds, they offer memberships and accept general donations.
Through public education efforts, nearly one million people have learned first-hand about the ocean and their role in its stewardship. PWF’s research data is provided to policy makers worldwide, because knowledge is the cornerstone of effective conservation action.
