Atlantic Marine Conservation Society is a 501 (c) 3 not for profit organization with a mission to promote marine conservation through action. This is accomplished by sharing the decades of experience amassed by our team. An integral part of sharing these lessons is working with local communities, state, and federal agencies, to address the issues challenging our environment. AMCS has developed partners in our communities to respond to marine mammal and sea turtle strandings. We educate the public about these strandings and how they can make positive impacts on the marine environment. We lead research projects to document wild populations of marine mammals and sea turtles and the threats they face.
