Dedicated to the conservation of marine mammals through rescue and rehabilitation, education and research.
The Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network, founded in 1980, is a network of volunteers dedicated to understanding and conserving marine mammals that strand along the Texas Gulf Coast. TMMSN is the only agency licensed under the federal Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 to handle stranded marine mammals - dead or alive - on the Texas Gulf Coast. TMMSN is divided into six regions along the Texas coast with volunteer regional coordinators in each area.
The aims of the network are to:
- respond to all marine mammal strandings within the state of Texas,
- respond to and care for live, stranded animals,
- perform necropsies and collect selected tissues for scientific research, and
- maintain both a database and tissues archive for all Texas strandings that are available to other researchers
