We extend our deepest thanks to all the individuals, organizations, and businesses that contributeto the efforts and activities of Kaua`i Monk Seal Watch Program. Your support enables our success. Financial donations have been received locally, as well as from individual supporters across the United States and Canada. As KMSWP is an entirely volunteer organization, one hundred per cent of this money directly funds our projects. Our heartfelt mahalo goes out to all donors, each of whom is a partner in preserving this desperately endangered species and its marine environment.
The following list of local KMSWP supporters is provided to express our mahalo. In addition, we often receive requests from Kaua`is visitors who would like to support businesses contributing to Hawaiian Monk Seal conservation. Our response to each request makes clear that KMSWP is in no way involved in any referral activity. The information below, to be updated periodically, is available for all.
