Whale Rescue

Dedicated to the protection and rescue of marine wildlife. For 20 years, Whale Rescue Team volunteers have come to the aid of entangled or beached whales, dolphins, seals, sea lions and sea birds along the California coast. Whale Rescue Team volunteers have rescued thousands of marine animals. The mission of the Whale Rescue Team is to replace an inadequate system of marine animal care with an effective, efficient and compassionate system providing every animal the best possible chance for survival. Whale Rescue Team's authorized territory is a very diverse coastline including, Marina del Rey, the largest man-made marina in the world, the rocky cliffs of Palos Verdes the crowed beaches of Venice and Santa Monica and the busy port of San Pedro. We also respond to Will Rogers Beach, Torrance, Royal Palms, Dockwieler, Redondo, White Point, Cabrillo, El Segundo, Manhattan
Beach and Hermosa Beach. The Whale Rescue Team works in cooperation with the Los Angeles County Lifeguards, the Los Angeles Police and Fire Departments and the Animal Services Departments throughout Los Angeles County. Whale Rescue Team volunteers also conduct educational resentations and community outreach programs throughout Los Angeles County. In addition to our rescue expertise the Whale Rescue Team is a advocate for marine wildlife networking with organizations throughout the world. The Whale Rescue Team vigorously opposes the capture and confinement of healthy marine mammals
