Sno-King Marine Mammal Response (SKMMR) is a volunteer organization that responds to marine mammal sightings in King and Snohomish Counties in Washington state.

SKMMR is a partner of the Western Region Marine Mammal Stranding Network, overseen by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and National Marine Fisheries Service, per the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972

Harbor seals and other marine mammals inhabit the same shorelines used by people.  By monitoring marine mammal health and educating the community, our goal is to promote conservation and stewardship of the Puget Sound.


Our Mission:

Nurture respect of the marine environment through the conservation of marine mammals.

"In the end we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we have been taught."
