About Marine Mammals of Maine
Marine Mammals of Maine provides response, assistance and care to stranded marine animals in the southern and mid-coast areas of Maine (Kittery to Rockland). We have a Stranding Agreement with NOAA Fisheries and an experienced volunteer animal response team.
MMOME is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization as defined by the IRS. We rely heavily on private financial support for our operational costs.
Our goals encompass collaboration with partner organizations to aid in the protection and support of marine animals as defined by the Marine Mammal Protection Act and we strive to provide public education about marine animals and the environment.
MMoME has an active Board of Directors and an Executive Director. Together, we have over 100 years experience working with marine animals in Maine.
We welcome you to visit our News and Notices page, Facebook and Twitter to find out current information about our organization. MMOME welcomes new volunteers and we encourage interested individuals to fill out our volunteer interest form and attend a mandatory bi-annual training session.
