The Oceanographic Environmental Research Society (OERS) is pleased to announce 
a granting system to financially assist various groups who are rescuing and 
rehabilitating marine mammals from environmental or man-made disasters 
(oilspills/strandings/fishing gear/etc.). These grants are meant to offset the 
direct costs of treating and rehabilitating marine species mostly within North 
America. Due to Canadian laws dealing with charities certain stipulations must 
be followed (ie a representative from OERS must be on site, the applying group 
must be a Canadian Marine Animal Rescue Network member, etc). Please note 
there are NO application deadlines as these incidents are unpredictable and 
therefore these grants are meant to be flexible and responsive.

For further information and application forms, please go to our website: 
oers.ca  and click on the Canadian Marine Animal Rescue Network button (top 
right hand corner) and go to emergency grants or send an email to 
getus at oers.ca with rescue grants in the subject header.

We hope that this granting system will promote greater co-operation between 
groups with the same interests and lower the number of tragic outcomes from 
these tragic circumstances.
