MOC Marine Institute (MOCMI) coordinates response to sick, injured, distressed, or expired sea turtles on the island of Maui, Hawaiʻi in partnership and coordination with NOAA Fisheries (as per regulations: 50 CFR Part 222.301).
To report a sick or injured sea turtle, please contact us on our 24-hour Sea Turtle Stranding Response Hotline at (888) 256-9840.
MOC Marine Institute works in close collaboration with our partners at NOAA Fisheries; our teams meet weekly to discuss patient progress, treatment plans, and criteria for release. MOC Marine Institute’s rehabilitation program aims to provide high-quality medical care to sea turtles in need while working to return our patients to the ocean as quickly as possible.
