Endangered Marine Species Need Your Support by June 30!

Endangered dolphins, sharks, seahorses, and other species need your help! Many of these threatened species are disappearing before they can be discovered and catalogued. We desperately need ways to preserve knowledge that may lead to their recovery and future protection.

You can help with a gift today to Ocean Genome Legacy (OGL).

When you give to OGL, you play a vital role as an ocean steward. June is National Oceans Month—and before it’s over, our goal is to attract new donors who are committed to protecting endangered marine species. Your gift of $25, $50, $100, or more will safeguard irreplaceable genomic materials from the world’s most vulnerable sea life.

But time is short! Please make your gift to OGL by Thursday, June 30, to help us meet our crucial goal!
