Description

OMI's objectives are to change people's awareness to better understand the natural world, and to protect ocean mammals. OMI's programs have three goals: To study the impact of human marine activities including noise pollution on whales and dolphins; to apply the results of research to protecting marine mammals and their environment; to allow people to participate fully in their research in order to educate them about important conservation issues and empower them to act responsibly. By doing research to protect the whales and dolphins, people learn they can help preserve biodiversity, including by addressing the problem of pollution. Operates in the US, Alaska and Hawaii
