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

Rating: 5 stars  

I visited their facility for the first time over this past weekend and was amazed by the importance of what they do in terms of providing full rehabilitation services to marine mammals and turtles, including highly endangered species. Not only do they provide these services but they are the ONLY facility in the area where the strandings occur. They are in the process of completing a renovation that will allow for a much greater capacity and will include a tank suitable for a pilot whale! In addition, they will now be able to take in dolphins and many more turtles. They are not a top-heavy organization and provide quality care where otherwise, in some cases, none would be available. I am extremely impressed by this and as a 20+ year, full-time resident of Cape Cod, very grateful that they are here to support some of our most exquisite wildlife.

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

Learning about the role they play in rehabilitating the marine mammals and turtles that strand on the beaches where I live.

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

friendly, professional and knowledgeable.

Ways to make it better...

The construction was complete and the tanks were populated.
