In New Jersey, the nonprofit Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine is the only agency involved with rescuing, rehabbing and releasing injured or sick seals, giant sea turtles or other mammals (including dolphins and whales) that wash ashore along New Jersey’s 1800 mile coastline. Some coastal states have six such agencies. New Jersey has only the Brigantine Center.
Among the cuts in President Obama’s new budget is eliminating “Prescott” funds that are a major portion of the Center’s annual budget-which relies on grants and private donations.
After learning of the Stranding Center’s plight, Reviva Labs recently donated a four-figure check to the center.
After visiting the Stranding Center recently, Reviva’s president, Stephen Strassler, learned that among the many supplies used in nursing the injured mammals are Multi Vitamins, trash bags, laundry detergent Borax, and many other products plus, of course, needed funds.
Thus, Reviva urges the business community, “cruelty free” Bloggers and consumers to help promote donations or product contributions to the Center.
