To cover FES costs, we rely on grants, sponsorships, memberships, and your donations.

 

With you as a friend, we can:

  • Expand the campaign to designate the elephant seal rookery as a state and national monument.

  • Extend rookery trails to include three new wheelchair accessible viewpoints.

  • Gather new data about the relationship between elephant seals and white sharks.

  • Add more languages to our translation system that permits foreign visitors to access information in their own language about the scene on the beach.

  • Increase the number of marine biology and veterinary medical students doing elephant seal research while interning with marine mammal rescue teams by providing stiipends for students.

  • Help pay transportation costs to bring young students to the rookery.
