Be Double the Hero Today

Starving and too young to be separated from his mother, Ody was found alone. Just like many other patients at our hospital right now, this skinny pup was in no shape to make it on his own.

Today, your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar. That means you can give double the meals and meds to help a patient like Ody return home for the holidays.

I want to be double the hero. Match my gift!

Gray whale numbers plunge almost 40% along California coast

Published in the San Francisco Chronicle: October 7, 2022

The gray whales that are often seen swimming with their calves near Point Reyes or Devil’s Slide in spring are declining in number.

The drop in population is likely due to changes in the amount of food that is available to them in the Arctic, as well as deaths from killer whales and ship strikes, scientists say.

...

That raises concerns for conservationists like Jeff Boehm, chief external relations officer at The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito. 

Our ocean and our marine mammals are sending SOS signals, and we need to listen and do more to address climate change now, not later.

Boehm ... noted that the news about gray whales comes at the 50th anniversary of the Marine Mammal Protection Act. “If ever a headline pointed to the need to utilize all the tools that legislation affords to protect this sentinel species, this is the one.”
