We are based on the Big Island of Hawai'i. If you would like to contribute equipment, vehicles, or provide financial assistance, please contact us.
We also have a wish list of equipment that we need. We have also set up a Wishlist on Amazon, to make it easier to purchase these helpful and needed items.
You can also select HMMC as your charity of choice in the Amazon Smile program. We then get a small percentage of the things you buy on Amazon. So far, we have raised over $500 this way.
Thanks to Stacy, Sonny, Amy, Adam, Mike and Anonymous!
HMMC is now safer, more comfortable, and better able to spread the word with our donated field chairs, mooring lines, safety whistles, hard drive and laser printer.
The following is a list of equipment that is needed for the ongoing research projects. Donations of pieces of equipment would be appreciated, and are fully tax-deductible
Some of these items are listed on our Amazon Wishlist, for easy shopping!
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Mahalo!
