Marine Mammal Institute
The Marine Mammal Institute integrates research, scientific and academic studies within Oregon State University. Our critical mission is to advance conservation and the understanding of marine mammal ecology, which incorporates habitat, food web, health and environmental issues. The Institute works with industries (fisheries, shipping, oil and others) that have potential for endangering target species to help them save marine mammals while accomplishing their work. Our research, information, and studies are targeted for use by public policy makers, scientists, media, educators, and the general public.
