Humpback sanctuary seeks advisory council members


The Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary is currently accepting applications for primary and alternate seats representing Business/Commerce, Citizen-at-Large, Commercial Shipping, Conservation, Ocean Recreation, Tourism, and Whale Watching on its Sanctuary Advisory Council.

Council members serve two-year terms, which are staggered to allow for continuity within the council.

The Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council was formed in 1996 for the purpose of providing advice to sanctuary management on the management and protection of the sanctuary.

The Council, through its members, also serves as a liaison to the community regarding sanctuary issues and acts as a conduit, relaying the community’s interests, concerns and management needs to the sanctuary.

At this time the sanctuary is opening up the selection process to the community and providing applications to interested individuals. The deadline for applications is Dec. 1, 2010.

The application form can be downloaded below. Before submitting the application, please read the Council Charter and the Council Handbook to familiarize yourself with the Council’s roles and responsibilities.

Questions may be directed to Council Coordinator Joseph Paulin at (808) 397-2651 ext. 257.
