The Whale and Marine Wildlife Adventure we did in July, as part of the summer program with the Monterey Peninsula Regional Park District’s Go H2O Camp, was a huge success. We had such a great time with the kids sharing our excitement, passion and knowledge about the whales and marine wildlife that inhabit the Monterey National Marine Sanctuary. On the whale watch boat, Princess Monterey, we saw blue whales and humpback whales. There were at least 12 blue whales - it was amazing. Click here to see more about our exciting time we had.

Spreading the word about Marine Life Studies and our mission to Teach and Inspire the public to protect Marine Wildlife helped us raise $1100 for the month of May. Your support every Monday in May was wonderful and heartwarming. I had a great time breaking bread with new and old friends. Thank you to Hula’s Island Grill in Monterey for sponsoring Marine Life Studies for Mahalo Mondays in May. The staff was awesome and the food delicious.
Wow, what an exciting February for Marine Life Studies. We kicked off our newest project the "Joey Jones Scholarship and Educational Fund" and all monies donated at the AT&T plus the whole month of February went directly to build the scholarship fund. Plus we promoted our free educational program for the schools.
Marine Life Studies coordinated a hands-on water training for W.E.T. in December. Cheryl McCormick, Executive Director of the American Cetacean Society (ACS), joined us. The article about W.E.T. is now available on page 5 of “Spyhopper, ACS Newsletter”.
