MERR is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the conservation of marine mammals and sea turtles and their habitat. MERR provides rescue and response for stranded marine animals that occur throughout the state of Delaware.
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.
Join MERR Institute aboard Cape Water Tours for a sunset on the Delaware Bay for an evening of fun, food ad frolicking dolphins. All proceeds benefit marine mammal and sea turtle rescue. Tickets will sell out, so order today!
