Kids Conservation Corner How You Can Help Marine Mammals 


Reduce your waste.

Reduce your waste:

Use less trash. Bring a canvas or string bag for grocery shopping instead of using plastic bags from the store.

Reuse containers.

Reuse containers:

Reuse containers. Refill your water bottle instead of getting a new one. Buy drinks in gallon containers and use reusable cups instead of cans and juice boxes.



Recycle whenever you can. Did you know you can recycle many things including cans, plastics, paper and even cardboard?

Organize a clean-up.

Organize a clean-up:

You can bring people together to clean-up a beach or bridge. Remember that all our trash eventually ends up in the ocean so even helping to clean up your street or park can make a difference.

Spread the word.

Spread the word:

Many people do not know about all the dangers that face marine mammals. You can make a difference! Be a dolphin advocate and teach others what you know.

Adopt a dolphin or sea lion.

or sea lion:

Help the animals at DRC by adopting a dolphin or sea lion. You can do this on your own or even with your class.
