Look for KCA in the opening parade Saturday morning starting at 9:00 AM on South Kihei Road
This Saturday, the long-awaited return of the Parade of Whales and Whale Day is finally here – this time, a completely reimagined event by a consortium of ocean advocates including Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, Whale Trust and DAR (Division of Aquatic Resources, State of Hawaii). PWF have been working together for SEVEN months to ensure that our mission work is highlighted and that Hawaiian heritage, culture and knowledge are a central focus for participants. Take a look below for a list of other collaborators.
Throughout the weekend, PWF hosts concert cruises with John Cruz and the Banana Slug String Band (and later, with Uncle Wayne and the Howling Dog Band), as well as VIP Eco-Adventures with PWF Board, Executive Director Kristie Wrigglesworth, and Selket Kaufman, the wife of PWF founder Greg Kaufman. Selket will also present the Greg Kaufman biopic A Voice for Whales at next weekend’s World Whale Film Festival, alongside 9 additional filmmakers who will be presenting short films about ocean conservation.
