Lynda Doughty, Marine Mammals of Maine

Tax deductible
CNN Heroes 2021 campaign

Growing up in Maine, Lynda Doughty was always fascinated by the marine wildlife that inhabited the state’s coastline. She became a marine biologist and dedicated her life to caring for marine animals in need. So, when state and government funding vanished and local organizations working to protect these animals closed their doors, she dove in to fill the gap in care. Since 2011, her organization, Marine Mammals of Maine, has provided response efforts, assistance, and medical care for more than 3,000 marine animals.

Your donation today will combine with other funds raised by MMoME this spring to build a stand-alone sample analysis lab—another way MMoME contributes to a better understanding of what happens below the surface of the ocean. We learn more about lesser-known species, causes of illness impacting specific species, and how things like climate change and other human factors are influencing marine animals’ life cycles.

Every dollar raised on top of the $20,000 price tag of the new lab will help propel MMoME through the busy summer stranding season in coastal Maine—responding to stranding calls for all species of marine mammals and triaging and rehabilitating seals who need a little extra help!
