Hawaiian Monk Seal Hospital Plans


Thanks to your extraordinary support, a dedicated hospital for endangered Hawaiian monk seals is rapidly nearing completion! You helped us raise more than $1.7 million, which will allow us to build pens and pools in which we can treat Hawaiian monk seal patients!

February 1, 2013

Having reached this milestone, we continue our campaign to raise the remaining $1.5 million to complete the entire project and make the dream of this first-of-its-kind hospital a reality. The completed facility will include a laboratory, food preparation area, and staff and volunteer support areas, in addition to an open-air visitor and education center. We look forward to working with our Hawaiian partners to make a difference for this iconic species.
