The Marine Mammal Commission’s mission, as defined by the U.S. Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), is to ensure that marine mammal populations are maintained as significant functioning elements of healthy marine ecosystems. The Commission announces a request for proposals for projects that further our understanding of how environmental factors affect marine mammal population health in a changing climate. The Commission will be accepting research proposals until April 12, 2023. For more information on proposal requirements, visit our website.
