Review for National Marine Life Center, Inc., Buzzards Bay, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered with NMLC for two years and was part of the community effort that helped get them established there in downtown Buzzards Bay more than a decade ago. Although they struggled for years with funding issues, they now represent a wonderful lifesaving resource to stranded marine animals throughout Cape Cod. The new facilities are first class, they have mobilized a network of dedicated professionals to lead the board of trustees, and the staff is top notch – talented and caring. With the largest number of stranding occurring in this area, this marine animal hospital and educational facility is perfectly positioned to involve many volunteers in the inevitable rescue efforts, advance the science of marine animals and save the lives of stranded animals.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the passion of the staff and other volunteers. They are involved in every part of the effort from pulling stranded marine animals out of freezing water, to raising money at charity events, to teaching school kids about the ocean environment. They love what they do and it shows.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderfully committed to the cause.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save the stranded dolphins and return them to the sea.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
