Meet the marine mammals!


WDC celebrated the first year of our Marine Animal Rescue & Response (MARR) program by doubling our response region to over 200 miles of coastline and are now acting as first responders to marine mammals who need help from Plymouth north toward Boston. 

A few of WDC's most dedicated donors were inspired by the doubling of our response region and have committed to 'Doubling Your Donation'! They will be matching every dollar that is donated until March 31st, up to $15,000!

Help us reach our goal of raising $30,000 by donating online or text "DOUBLEWHALE" to 44321 to make a donation.
