Donate Today to Gotham Whale!


We are a non-profit citizen scientist organization supported by YOUR volunteer efforts and generous donations.

Since 2009, Gotham Whale has been an all volunteer effort, combining the interest and enthusiasm of many dedicated individuals. The cataloging of individual whales, mapping their location, and maintaining a database for this research takes effort and expense. Gotham Whale is hopeful that your donations will sustain this important work as more and more whales come to the waters of NYC.

Your support is appreciated as we build Gotham Whale into an influential organization that advocates for whales and marine mammals around NYC.
