Protecting humpback whale mother and calf pairs
and their critical nursery habitat in the waters of Hawaii

Every year pregnant humpback whales from across the North Pacific head to the waters of Hawaii.
They come to these warm, protected waters seeking a safe, protected nursery where they can raise their young calves.

Our goal is to ensure that the whales and their habitat are protected during these critical first days in the life of the youngest humpback whales, the Keiki Kohola.
