OUR NEXT EVENT
Our next charity event will be supporting Oregon Coast Aquarium
16th July 2023 from 9am to 9pm PT
The Oregon Coast Aquarium is one of just three wildlife rehabilitation facilities in the Pacific Northwest, and the only one in Oregon authorized by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and NOAA to provide specialized care to endangered marine life like sea turtles, marine mammals, and sea birds. OCA is also one of only 13 organizations in the U.S. authorized to accept rescued sea otters.
Oregon Coast Aquarium currently rescues and rehabilitates about 300 animals annually. With this charity event, we are going to help them to expand their capacity and enable them to have a vet and vet tech on site, rather than contracted from other places like Oregon State University. This will help both their rehab program and their resident animals!
Oregon Coast Aquarium hopes to break ground on a new marine wildlife rehabilitation center this fall. To honor indigenous people on the Central Coast of Oregon, they have worked with the Confederated Tribes of Siletz to name the new Marine Wildlife Rehabilitation Center using Athabaskan words from their heritage (Na-Dené, Alsea, Yaquina and other indigenous languages). This building will be called the Sees-ha Xwee-Nish Marine Wildlife Center, which means “Ocean Life” and is pronounced: “See Sha Schwee Neesh".
