Improving and protecting life for marine mammals, humans, and our shared oceans through science, service, and education.

The NMMF is proud of our team’s decades of experience studying and caring for marine mammals, which allows us to partner with leaders in the scientific community to conduct high-priority investigations into marine mammal medicine, science, and conservation.

Our 150-member team of professionals conducts cutting-edge research that protects marine mammals in the wild while enhancing the health and welfare of marine mammals in human care. Based on this work, we develop and implement strategies to conserve marine mammals across the globe.
