VOLUNTEER WITH MARS
Every year, MARS staff and volunteers respond to incidents involving dead and distressed marine animals throughout the Maritime provinces. While we collaborate with a number of organizations, it is through the dedication and hard work of volunteers across the Maritime provinces the we continue to be successful.
Incidents can be sporadic and unpredictable in nature, and we often need volunteers to visit sites, confirm a report of a dead or distressed marine animal, and to collect data including photos, measurements and possibly even samples. If MARS responders are on scene to direct rescue efforts, there may be additional opportunities to help.
MARS is committed to providing its volunteers with opportunities to safely engage in, and benefit from, participating in a number of different response activities.

If MARS responders are on scene to direct rescue efforts, there may be additional opportunities to help response efforts; however, incidents are unpredictable and we cannot guarantee when or where they will happen.
