Wheels for Seals: Help HMAR Purchase a Truck!

WE NEED YOUR HELP! HMAR is in need of a response truck! We currently have two aging trucks that are very vulnerable to breakdowns and repairs. This puts our ability to respond to Hawaiian monk seals, sea turtles, and seabirds at risk and YOU CAN HELP!

We drive every day all around Oahu to help Hawaiian monk seals, sea turtles, and sea birds - on average between 1,500 and 2,500 miles each month. We need to invest in a used full-size four-wheel drive response truck and a used vehicle of this type in good working condition will run about $40,000.

Another way to donate is through our pledge per miles campaign! During the month of July, we will be counting the miles we drive and you can pledge to donate a certain amount per mile that we drive during that month. You can pledge anything from $.05 (5 cents) to $20.00 per mile! At the end of the month, we will tally up how many miles we drove, calculate your donation amount and contact you! For this method, please go to h-mar.org/pledge!

HMAR is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization designated by the IRS and all donations are tax-deductible.
