The Sea Otter Savvy program is 100% funded by grants and donations from people like you. Please consider making a donation to our project by using our secured donation form. Our small organization is locally based on the central California coast and our low overhead ensures that you donation will directly support the work we do to help sea otters.
Sea Otter Savvy is registered as a nonprofit, public benefit organization with the State of California. Sea Otter Savvy is a tax-exempt public benefit nonprofit organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code.
COVID-19 has been the source of both obstacles and innovations to our plans and strategies for outreach and research, but it is due to the shock of the pandemic on our grants and funding sources that Sea Otter Savvy is facing our most serious threat to survival. Our organization is funded entirely by grants and contributions from people like you who want to see a safer, more peaceful world for sea otters and all wildlife. Many of the funding sources that have supported our work over the last five years are reducing or suspending funding opportunities as they ride out the pandemic. Without additional financial support for 2021, we will not be able to sustain our research, outreach, and conservation efforts at the level our team has worked so hard to establish at a time when sea otters need us most.
You can help by joining our GoFundMe campaign or donating via our Donate link. Even the smallest donation may fund a “Respect the Nap” sticker for a child or a pair of binoculars for one of our community science researchers.
