VolunteerOriginally founded by three volunteers, the Northcoast Marine Mammal Center relies entirely on a dynamic volunteer work force. The energy and dedication of many talented people are needed to maintain the smooth operation of the NMMC. Not only do volunteers conduct all rescue and animal care at the Center, but we also rely on them to operate our gift shop and conduct educational outreach at local schools and community events. Volunteering at the Center can be a fulfilling and exciting adventure. Consider sharing your talents and meeting others whom share you concern and love for the ocean environment and its creatures.

Interested in becoming a Volunteer? Fill out the volunteer application below and we will contact you. Volunteers are essential during an emergency, but it is the year round efforts of volunteers in animal care, fundraising, and our Gift Shop that make NMMC rescues possible. Our Volunteers are the people that have and continue to make the NMMC a reality.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and attend orientation and training classes.
