Animal Health and Welfare

Preventing, detecting, and treating disease in marine mammals and enhancing animal welfare through medicine and research.

The NMMF recognizes the great privilege and responsibility in working with animals under human care. Our Animal Health and Welfare team honors this commitment by taking the best possible care of marine mammals in all environments. Providing direct care to marine mammals allows us the unique opportunity to learn about their species in a manner not possible in the wild. These invaluable lessons are then applied to wild animal populations in an effort to promote species conservation of marine mammals around the world.
