The New York Marine Rescue Center is a rescue and rehabilitation organization that promotes marine conservation. Their mission is to preserve and protect the marine environment through conservation efforts including rescue, rehabilitation, education and research. They are the primary responders for sick or injured seals, sea turtles, dolphins, porpoises and small toothed whales, and maintain the only marine mammal and sea turtle rehabilitation center in New York State.
Through its partnership with Canon, the center is able to satellite tag and track sea turtles. Also, Canon’s webcam gives the public a rare glimpse at the rehabilitation work being done at the Center.
Research efforts are made possible using Canon products such as digital SLRs, camera lenses, network cameras and color laser printers as they help support the monitoring of the seal population in the waters around Long Island.
