When you purchase a Hawaiian Monk Seal Bracelet, 4Ocean pull one pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines on your behalf. You’ll also be helping to raise awareness about the endangered whale shark and the steps that must be taken to save them. Purchases of this bracelet will contribute to a $25,000 donation to The Marine Mammal Center to support the work happening at Ke Kai Ola, the hospital they opened to care for sick, injured, and orphaned Hawaiian monk seals.
There are less than 1,400 Hawaiian monk seals left in the wild and they can only be found in Hawaii. The accumulation of marine debris, especially discarded fishing gear, is relentless in Hawaiian monk seal habitats. The number of seals found entangled remains largely the same each year.
Entanglement is one of the largest threats Hawaiian monk seals face. In fact, they have one of the highest documented entanglement rates of any pinniped species.
Every bracelet purchased funds the removal of one pound of trash from the ocean, rivers, and coastlines
