We all know that Hawai‘i’s waters are home to rare and interesting marine life, including whales, dolphins, sea turtles and monk seals. However, many visitors do not know that these sea creatures are under the protection of state and federal laws and they need ample room to go about their business. How do we help Hawai‘i’s visitors enjoy responsible viewing of our special wildlife while keeping the wildlife from being loved to death? Tailored for tour boat crew and naturalists, this class offers an overview of some of Hawai‘i’s most visible and oft-encountered protected marine life, their basic biological needs, distribution and how to assist in their protection. Students will receive a Certificate of Completion from EdVenture Maui College upon successful completion of this course.
