Monk Seal Foundation to cease operations
The Board of the Monk Seal Foundation has reached the difficult but unavoidable decision to dissolve the organization.
We have faced uphill challenges throughout the past year in maintaining the necessary funding and human resources necessary for the organization to sustain all of its projects. We have put considerable effort into exploring different scenarios for partnering with other groups and/or scaling back our operations, but none of these has provided an adequate path forward.
We’re profoundly grateful for the countless ways that our supporters, partners, volunteers, and friends have contributed to the Monk Seal Foundation over the years, and we’re proud of what we’ve been able to achieve together. This may be the final chapter for the Monk Seal Foundation but we have great hopes for the future of the Hawaiian monk seals and we know that everyone who helped to make the Monk Seal Foundation a reality will continue to fight to save these amazing animals.
