The oceans are home to some of the most unique marine animals on Earth.
They include whales, sharks, and dolphins.
And as marine life continues to disappear around the world, many scientists and conservationists are looking to protect them.
Here’s how to do that.
Get a dolphin sanctuary The world’s most charismatic animals have been the focus of conservation efforts for decades.
A few of them are endangered, but a growing number of researchers, NGOs, and businesses are actively trying to save them.
The first dolphin sanctuary opened in 1972 in the Philippines, which is now home to at least 70 marine mammals, including some of those endangered.
The dolphin sanctuary was built by the Japanese company Hokkaido Marine Science Center (HMSC) to provide a sanctuary for dolphins, porpoises, porcupines, and other marine life.
HMSC is now the largest commercial dolphin sanctuary in the world with more than 3,000 animals.
Make a list of endangered species and get a grant Some marine conservationists use the list of the endangered species as a way to secure funding to help with conservation efforts.
Some organizations also use it to help fund conservation projects.
Here are some of their guidelines.
Don’t take donations Don’t give money directly to endangered species.
This includes any money that’s given by governments or organizations, such as conservation grants.
Do not buy, rent, sell, or trade endangered species, including endangered species that are endangered because of hunting, fishing, or pollution.
Make sure that you are not taking money from organizations that will harm the marine ecosystem and species you want to protect.
Donate to endangered animals.
The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) has a list, The List of Endangered Animals, which can be used to locate endangered species you can donate to.
You can also donate through the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
Make sure you have the right information about the species you are donating to.
Be aware of tax issues and restrictions Don’t assume that you can give to the listed species because of its tax status or any restrictions in your country.
If you are unsure about whether or not an endangered species is listed, or if you don’t know if it is listed at all, you should call the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
Make an effort to save endangered species There are a few ways to make a difference in endangered species’ future.
First, it’s important to have a strong commitment to their conservation.
If an animal’s status is not a priority, conservation efforts can be very slow or ineffective.
Second, there are a number of organizations that work to help protect marine mammals from extinction.
These organizations are known as the Endangered Species Act (ESA) organizations.
These are groups of international conservationists who are dedicated to protecting marine mammals and other species.
They work together to protect marine animals from the threats that they face from pollution, hunting, habitat loss, and diseases.

Learn the importance of protecting the oceans We live in an interconnected world, and our oceans are full of marine life that’s in danger of extinction.
Here is a list that highlights the marine mammals that are at risk of disappearing.
The United States has one of the highest numbers of threatened marine species.
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park is home to more than 80 percent of the world’s threatened marine life, and it’s the world leader in the management of the Great Barrier and Southern Ocean.
It’s also home to the world-famous and endangered sperm whales.
There are around 5,000 whale species and they’re all threatened.
They are all found in a variety of habitats from coral reefs to shallow ocean depths.
They live in groups of up to 20, and they often interact with each other.
The whales also help each other in feeding and foraging.
They can live for years and even centuries without food.
Some of these species are known for their remarkable ability to swim underwater, and their ability to navigate.
The world is losing whales and dolphins at an alarming rate.
