"While there is hardly another species on the planet that evokes so much human fascination and empathy, the dolphin has become a symbol or microcosm of our deteriorating relationship with the Earth, particularly its seas and oceans."
Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan
Why you matter
Stranding organizations worldwide operate on limited budgets and often need help in keeping stranded whales and dolphins comfortable.
It takes time to assess the health of the animals and to determine the best course for them - whether to attempt to return them to the sea, euthanize them, or send them for extended rehabilitation.
You can donate time and/or money in a variety of ways.
A COMMITMENT TO HELPING THE SICK AND INJURED
Rehabilitating whales and dolphins is often difficult, expensive, and time consuming.
Trained volunteers are needed in many capacities from hands-on support to spreading the word on social media platforms.
