Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network

Dedicated to the conservation of marine mammals through rescue and rehabilitation, research and education.


Your generous contributions to our marine mammal conservation work can also be made here:

The TMMSN is a non-profit organization in which all donations are considered tax deductible contributions and can be acknowledged as such with an official acknowledgement letter for tax purposes.


The following items on our wish list are needed for the daily operations of the Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network and all donated items and funds will go toward the mission of TMMSN of rescue and rehabilitation, research and education with regard to the marine mammals of the Texas Gulf Coast.

The following list contains some specific needs of our Network, but is by no means an exhaustive list or is meant to be restrictive in any way. The websites that the items are linked to serve as a convenient way for the public and supporters to view and order the specific item listed.

To all of our volunteers, members, and generous supporters, we can't say "Thank You" enough!
