Volunteer Opportunities

Be a part of our community

Volunteer on Maui with Malama Land & Sea beach cleanups and more! The team at the Maui Ocean Center is dedicated to fostering understanding wonder, and respect for Hawai‘i’s marine life. Our desire is to partner with other like-minded individuals who wish to help restore and protect our marine environment. Maui Ocean Center hosts beach cleanups on a monthly basis and often joins non-profits for storm drain stenciling and other similar volunteer events.
