The Marine Mammal Center is leading the field in ocean conservation through marine mammal rescue, veterinary science and education. Marine mammals are ecosystem indicators, and their health provides insights into human and ocean threats.
As a founding member of the Trash Free Seas Alliance®, the Marine Mammal Center works alongside leaders in conservation to find upstream solutions that can reduce the amount of plastic entering our ocean. “The ocean is in trouble, and human activity is threatening marine ecosystems that are vital to the health of the ocean and to all life on earth. That’s why we are proud to be part of efforts to work toward plastic-free seas to protect marine mammals and the entire ecosystem.” – Dr. Jeff Boehm, executive director, The Marine Mammal Center
