  • Develop education programs to share NMMF research discoveries and expertise
  • Foster an environment that creatively, effectively, and positively shapes marine mammal medicine, research, training, and education
  • Conduct research that benefits the conservation andcare of marine mammals and the health of humans
  • Support the Navy’s ability to provide exceptional care and training of their marine mammals


Our Vision

Our vision for the future is to revolutionize the way we think about marine mammals. By embracing the partnership created between human and marine mammal, we can create a sea change in our global approach to scientific exploration, ocean conservation, and public education.
