Waikīkī Aquarium Beach Cleanup Program
Support ocean conservation through community action
The Waikīkī Aquarium needs your help!
We want to expand our beach cleanup program and create a hands-on learning experience for residents and visitors alike.
Will you help us with a gift to support our beach cleanup program?
If you can give $8, you can help cover the cost of supplies for one beach cleanup volunteer. To host each event, we provide every volunteer with all necessary supplies, such as buckets, bags, tongs, gloves, sanitizer, refreshments, and more.
With the rising marine debris crisis and the impact of plastic and other forms of litter, it is vital for us to place renewed emphasis on the importance of protecting marine ecosystems for future generations.
Our beach cleanups combat this issue by curbing the amount of improperly discarded trash from ending up in our ocean, while educating participants on ways to reduce their carbon footprint in their everyday lives.
With the help of over 400 volunteers this year, we were able to remove over 500 pounds of marine debris, including microplastics, cigarette butts, food wrappers, and fishing nets. Your gift today will help us increase our volunteer capacity and take care of our coastlines together.
Mahalo for your gift!
