The function of The New York State Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Stranding Program is the rescue and rehabilitation of marine mammals and sea turtles. As a member of our adoption family you are helping provide food and medication for animals under our care. The whales in our program have been seen during our whale watch research cruises that we have conducted in the past. Adoptions are great gifts!
