Inspiring young minds through marine mammal science.
Students’ innate love of dolphins, whales, and other marine mammals, coupled with the fascinating research of NMMF scientists, creates a wonderful environment for learning about marine mammal science, medicine, and ocean conservation. Our community outreach programs highlight NMMF discoveries about marine mammals to promote creative thinking and inspire a greater commitment to the conservation of marine mammals and their habitats.

Amplifying impact and reach through collaborations.
In order to maximize impact, we partner with like-minded organizations and institutions, allowing our outreach programs to reach a broad audience – from elementary to college students, teachers, professors, and academic leaders. We strive to engage with students in underserved communities and are continually expanding our collaborations with schools and other nonprofit organizations to extend our reach. The commitment to community outreach among NMMF professionals is strong; 90% of our programming includes staff volunteers.
