Our Work Never Stops, But We Need Your Help!

We fund our efforts through visits by our guests. Though we are closed to the public, we are never really closed. Marine life rescue and animal care is 24/7 365. We are still here caring for our animals, and we need your help. 

Every dollar donated goes toward animal care. Our animals depend on you for a second chance at life. You’re part of #TeamCMA, and we need you now more than ever!

Please donate today! Each dollar you donate will be doubled bya matching partner now!  So if you give $1, we receive $2!
