Want a simple way you can help patients like Leimana? Become a Sustaining Member today!

You see, as a Sustaining Member, your automatic monthly gift will be helping vulnerable marine mammals like Leimana every day of the year!

Leimana was starving when she arrived at our hospital. But thanks to support from Sustaining Members, she got all the food and care she needed—and a second chance at life.

As you can imagine, many patients require life-saving surgeries to remove swallowed fishing hooks and other ocean trash, medicine to cure infections and advanced tests to diagnose illnesses. You’ll make all of that, and more, possible with your monthly gift.

You’ll find that saving animals like Leimana is particularly meaningful. Why? She is a member of an endangered species, the Hawaiian monk seal—only about 1,400 of these seals are alive today.

But caring people like you are taking urgent action! You see, about 30 percent of these Hawaiian monk seals are alive today directly due to conservation efforts led by NOAA and partners like the Center and you. Helping individual patients like Leimana not only gives her a second chance at life, but you also increase the odds that this endangered population will grow as Leimana might give birth to several monk seals in her lifetime.

Join ocean-lovers like you supporting this life-changing work. One patient at a time, with your automatic monthly gift you’ll be saving marine mammals all year long.
