Every year, MMSC puts together events to both educate and promote our efforts. As a non-profit, this enables us to continue our goal to save and preserve marine wildlife.
For 41 years, the Marine Mammal Stranding Center has relied on the generosity of donors to assist our efforts to respond to over 5,200 animals in need. Donations from individuals and fundraising events make up a large portion of the funds we receive to sustain our efforts. Fundraisers such as "Sippers For Flippers" also play an important part in increasing awareness and funds for our work.
All donations are greatly appreciated, no matter the size!
