SWIM 2016: Maui Hawaii
Jul 29 all-day

Make your next vacation look (and do) good for sea turtles and the environment by joining one of our new 2016 SWIM destination eco tour programs! The Serving the World’s Imperiled Marine life (SWIM) program gives you the opportunity to experience hands on sea turtle research, rehabilitation, and conservation efforts while experiencing a unique vacation to some of the world’s most unique marine ecosystems.

The island state of Hawai’i is home to one of the world’s most important humpback whale migration routes and sea turtle habitats. Situated within the shallow, warm waters surrounding the main Hawaiian Islands, the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary aims to protect these imperiled animals. On this service excursion, you will be participating in sea turtle and research and rescue projects to help local biologists better understand the population distribution of these animals as well as discover the other abundant marine life and ecosystems that comprise this beautiful archipelago.

The Children’s Research Station presented by the Marshall E. Rinker, Sr. Foundation exercises science skills in children through an experiential lab. Geared at children ages up to 12, the junior veterinary lab accommodates up to 10 children at a time during daily half hour programs, taking participants from sea turtle rescue to release.

The program features “Dr. Logger,” a trained Loggerhead Marinelife Center volunteer acting as the center’s veterinarian.  The 30 minute program begins when Dr. Logger receives a role-played call on the radio from the beach about a sick and injured sea turtle, igniting immediate excitement in participants. The children come to the aid of a green sea turtle replica and Dr. Logger teaches the group about common injuries and illnesses that affect these endangered animals.
