Marine Mammals of Maine's Founder and Executive Director, Lynda Ada Doughty, has been named a 2021 CNN Hero!
Along with the great honor of being internationally recognized for world-changing work, this nomination puts Marine Mammals of Maine in the running as a top-ten hero to receive $10,000, to be selected by public voting in the fall. If we make the top 10, MMoME would be eligible for the Hero of the Year award, receiving $100,000 to continue our mission.
Until voting starts later this year, CNN Heroes has created a GoFundMe to support our work. We need your help to reach the goal of $50,000 to further these conservation efforts and increase much-needed rehab capacity in the Northeast this coming summer.
