For the last 20 years, the Perry Institute for Marine Science has helped scientists explore the sea, taught experts to manage precious fisheries and ecosystems, and educated the world on how to protect our oceans.
Until 2006, the Caribbean Marine Research Center at the Perry Institute for Marine Science was funded in large part by grants from the United States government. This year, that funding is slated to be cut by $1.6 million and the Perry Institute for Marine Science will receive nothing. This circumstance has put our center, and more importantly the vital research and education that we provide, in great jeopardy.
Today, we urgently need private donations from people like you to keep the Perry Institute for Marine Science operating. With every dollar that you donate, you will help protect our coastal environments and coral reefs, increase awareness of threatened fish and marine life, and, most important, ensure the long-term enjoyment of our oceans - for you, your family and your friends.
