The Society for Marine Mammalogy (SMM) is seeking funding to establish a Conservation Fund endowment. This endowment will be used to fund high-priority research on the world’s most endangered marine mammal species with the goal of catalyzing real conservation action. The SMM is currently accepting pledges of $1000 or more towards the start-up goal of $1.5 million. Current pledges total $628,000. We hope to build this fund to $5 million and fund proposals totaling $300-500,000 per two-year cycle. Click on the brochure below for more information. Please contact the SMM President (Jay Barlow) at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to donate or help with fundraising.
