Hawaii Marine Animal Response (HMAR) Sponsorship Programs

It takes a lot to run our field response, outreach, rescue and marine debris programs. We work hard to cover our costs through grants and private donations, but we still need help. We’re looking for local partners to support our ongoing work and help us make an even bigger impact on the protected marine animals and the ocean ecosystem we all love. Whether your organization shares a beach with resting monk seals or your guests come back year after year to enjoy seeing sea turtles and seabirds, this is an opportunity to directly support the conservation of these important animals.

Your organization, company or foundation can play an important role in helping HMAR in our mission of helping Hawaii’s protected marine animals and our shared ocean ecosystem.  We offer several different sponsorship programs, or we can customize a program especially for you.

Sponsorship benefits include:

  • Positive community awareness of your proactive preservation and stewardship efforts.
  • Employee participation in HMAR conservation efforts.
  • A package of exclusive, high-value rewards that include brand alignment and media exposure.
