Looking to volunteer?
We can’t wait to meet you!
We need volunteers to help us get the word out about Saving Ocean Wildlife. If you have social media prowess we want you! Will you help us get the message out far and wide? Do you have networks like clubs you belong to, friends groups, community organizations, coworkers that you could help us reach out to, to help us educate more of the public? Are you a great writer? Would you like to be a guest blogger or help us write our monthly newsletter? Please let us know!
Report an Animal in California
We need help encouraging the public and businesses such as fishing charters and whale watching companies to start using our reporting form to gather important information about animals sighted. If you are interested in helping us to encourage more reporting please let us know. Or you could go out regularly to your favorite beach or if you have a boat, go out into the ocean and be a regular reporter for us. The more data collected, the better!
We will be recruiting volunteers toward the end of 2020 to be part of our land-based and on-the-water monitoring program. Volunteers will be trained in data collection and assist us in regular monitoring trips to gather information on local and migrating species such as whales, dolphins, sea lions and seals. We will also be looking for rehabilitated animals to find out how they are doing after having been treated and released. All the data will be provided to NOAA and other government agencies to aid them in management and policy decisions.
(We anticipate that this program will start in 2021 after COVID restrictions have been lifted and the team can get back in touch with you as the program launches.)
