SOS Dolfijn empowers and connects volunteers to rescue vulnerable marine life in the North Sea.
Discarded plastic, invasive fishing gear, and harmful ocean noises pose constant threats to the whales, dolphins, and harbour porpoises in the North Sea.
All along the coasts of the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and northern France, marine mammals wash ashore, isolated and unable to return to the water.
One by one, the North Sea loses a life, and a delicate ecosystem comes under threat.
A few years ago, we partnered with the Dutch whale rescue organization SOS Dolfijn, training volunteers and coordinating efforts to save stranded marine mammals at a moment’s notice.
More than 75 volunteers are ready day and night for rescues on the coast of the North Sea.
We rescue marine life. We educate the public on conservation. We clean beaches. And together, we save lives.
