The mission of The Whale Sanctuary Project is to establish a model seaside sanctuary where cetaceans (whales and dolphins) can live in an environment that maximizes well-being and autonomy and is as close as possible to their natural habitat.
More about the project
Special thanks to Munchkin Inc., makers of innovative products for babies and children, and CEO, Steven Dunn, for donating $200,000 to fund the next stage of The Whale Sanctuary Project.
This will enable us to complete the initial site search, along with the strategic plan for building the sanctuary and the transport and care of the first animals.
Munchkin has also pledged further donations totaling at least $1,000,000 toward completion of the first seaside sanctuary.
(Check out Munchkin's Project Orca for more about their support.)
