Net Recovery Patrol

HWF team and core volunteers will conduct marine debris recovery efforts targeting large debris items, including derelict fishing nets and line bundles, that are especially hazardous to marine wildlife. For first-time volunteers, we’d recommend joining us for a community cleanup first and then checking in with our staff to see if a net patrol is a good fit for you!

Please contact us for more info (www.wildhawaii.org/contact) and check out our website for more opportunities to get involved (with the monthly community cleanup events on the island).  If you are visiting the island and would like more tips on being an eco-conscious visitor please check out our BLOG here (https://www.wildhawaii.org/tips-for-the-eco-conscious-traveler/).  Mahalo nui for your interest in supporting native wildlife in Hawai’i!

These biweekly net recovery patrols are funded by a competitive grant award from NOAA.  For more information about supporting HWF efforts please visit our website.

Great for families. Bring the kids and friends to beach cleanups and restoration projects. See where plastics end up and why it’s important to reduce plastic use and commit to more sustainable agriculture and fishing with less adverse human impact.

Be sure to RSVP, sign a waiver (if applicable) and check with the mentioned organizer to confirm details in advance.

Some snorkel, dive or beach cleanups may require proper certification and being comfortable in or around the water and familiar with water safety. If you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out. Mahalo 🤙
