Marine Mammals Celebration

Overview

Marine mammals all over the world need our help. Changing climate, polluted oceans and shrinking habitat have led many species to dire straits. But these extraordinary animals also inspire us.

Polar bears are at the top of the food chain and have an important role in the overall health of the marine environment. Seals spend lots of time in the water, but they breed, give birth to live young and nurse their young on shore.

Keeping the environment clean is a huge part of the conservation efforts for marine mammals. By keeping our rivers clean, we help make sure these animals and our local species can stay healthy and find adequate food sources.

Join us for Marine Mammal Appreciation Week to find out how your actions here in New Mexico can help these animals thrive.
