Registration for the 2020 Ocean Count events will commence in mid-December! Please visit our website then! Mahalo!

*No training required for O’ahu & Hawai’i Island volunteers.

*Training is required of all Kaua’i volunteers except for one site location. See info below!  

Those who have taken Jean Souza’s training in the past are good to go, but always welcome to join in the training as a refresher (as we all know, the information about these critters is very dynamic, so try to stay informed).  For new volunteers, here is the training schedule. No need to pre-register for training, just show up. Please take the training session BEFORE your count day.

*Info for 2020 Kauai volunteer training TBD !!!

*The only Kaua‘i site that can accommodate untrained volunteers in 2020 is at Poipu Beach Park, Poipu.
