The team at the Maui Ocean Center is passionately dedicated to education and fostering wonder, respect, and understanding of Hawaii’s marine life. Our desire is to partner with other like-minded individuals who wish to help restore and protect our marine environment for healthy reefs and life for all. Maui Ocean Center hosts beach cleanups on a monthly basis, and often joins non-profits for storm drain stenciling and other similar volunteer events.
