WHAT DOES MERR DO?
MERR is on call 24/7 to provide rescue and care for marine mammals and sea turtles that might be ill, injured, entangled or otherwise in need. In addition, we conduct research on those animals that have died so that we can glean information on the animal, the cause of death, more about the species, and ocean health. We contribute this information to Federal, state and local entities, as well as researchers and others in the marine conservation field. MERR conducts education and outreach programs throughout the state on the topic of marine mammal and sea turtle ecology and conservation. We believe that education is the most important key to conservation.
MERR YARD SALE 5/13/23
The Marine Education, Research and Rehabilitation Institute, Inc. will once again hold its annual yard sale from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, May 13, at its facility on Pilottown Road.
MERR’s yard sale is one of the major fundraisers for the organization. This year, the event will feature its usual assortment of items for home and garden and an all-new plant sale to be featured on the grounds.
All funds raised during the event will go to the year-round efforts of the non-profit organization, which serves as the only response and rescue organization for marine mammals and sea turtles stranding in Delaware. Care for these animals includes food and care, veterinary treatment, transportation and supplies.
MERR also hosts a number of outreach endeavors in which representatives travel to area schools and events to inform students and the general public about ocean conservation and the marine mammals and sea turtles that visit Delaware.
The yard sale at the MERR facility, located at 801 Pilottown Road, next to the Coast Guard Station, will take place rain or shine.
