SMM Conservation Fund

The Society for Marine Mammalogy (SMM) has established a Conservation Fund endowment. This endowment is being used to fund high-priority research on the world’s most endangered marine mammal species with the goal of catalyzing real conservation action. Current pledges total $628,000. We hope to build this fund to $5 million and fund proposals totaling $300-500,000 per two-year cycle.

The SMM Conservation Fund will open to receive proposals for 2021 from July 1-31, 2021. Find out more here.
