Looking For A Unique Gift From the Heart?
The National Marine Life Center mission is to rehabilitate and release stranded whales,
dolphins, seals and sea turtles, and to advance scientific knowledge
and education in marine wildlife health and conservation.
What is the NMLC? It is a unique approach to meeting a need and responding to an environmental concern. The leaders of the National Marine Life Center, Inc.(NMLC),
a private, independent not-for-profit organization, are raising money to renovate a building to create a marine animal rehabilitation hospital and science/education center. The hospital will give medical care to stranded seals, dolphins, marine turtles and small whales. The public will be able to visit the marine animal science center.
Currently, when marine animals strand on the shores of the northeast United States, their chances of survival are significantly lowered by the lack of facilities dedicated to their care. Most animals that would be candidates for rehabilitation and release are now euthanized.
Once operational, the NMLC will be the only facility and program of its kind in North America as an independent organization dedicated to the medical care of diverse species of stranded marine animals (many of them endangered species) and to research and public education.
