New England Basking Shark and Ocean Sunfish Project
A community marine sighting network that trains public volunteers to report sightings of basking sharks and ocean sunfish in New England waters. NECWA staff also respond to ocean sunfish strandings that occur along the shores of Cape Cod Bay each fall and early winter.
The Nature Connection
This project focuses on helping to better connect the general public, especially young children, with the unique coastal marine organisms that share our coastlines. Your support will allow NECWA to purchase nets, scopes and other necessary equipment for these types of outdoor nature programs that help connect learners of all ages with coastal marine habitats.
Classroom and Community Marine Wildlife Presentations
Your support will allow us to continue to offer reasonably priced programs and free presentations to the general public and to students of all ages.
Educational Festivals and Events
NECWA attends many local festivals and events in New England as a way of getting the word out about the uniqueness of our coastal marine wildlife. Your support will allow NECWA to sponsor an educational booth that distributes free educational material and provides hands-on learning activities for festival participants.
Inflatable Basking Shark
How better to get across the immense size of a basking shark then by displaying a full-sized model on a lawn or in a classroom. Your support will help NECWA raise the money needed to secure the services of a local artist as she creates a life-sized basking shark that can be inflated using a small fan.
Inflatable Salt, the Humpback Whale
Help NECWA purchase a commercial-grade inflatable whale. We have a life-sized inflatable whale of Salt that we built a few years ago, but it is not holding-up as well as we would like with all the wear and tear. Go to our GoFundMe site and donate today!
Volunteer Members of Marine Stranding Networks
Members of NECWA are trained volunteers for a number of local marine stranding centers in southeastern Massachusetts, including the New England Aquarium Stranding Center and IFAW's Marine Mammal Rescue and Research Team. Your support will purchase needed field equipment and materials that allow NECWA members to assist at strandings of live and dead marine animals. NECWA staff and interns also assist with marine mammal necropsies that provide vital information about the cause of death and the health of the individual that stranded along our shores.
