To sustain our mission, we ask for your help.

MMoME relies almost entirely on private donations to annual operating costs. Without generous and compassionate donors, marine mammal response on southern and midcoast Maine beaches would be limited.

Donated funds go towards stranding response truck repairs, maintenance, and fuel, animal care supplies, hotline phone plan costs, and staffing.
