Channel Islands Marine & Wildlife Institute’s (CIMWI’s) core work is the rescue and rehabilitation of sick, injured, malnourished, orphaned, entangled and oiled marine mammals. CIMWI is the only organization authorized by NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service to respond to live and dead pinnipeds (seals and sea lions), live and dead sea turtles, and live cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises), rehabilitate live pinnipeds, and triage live cetaceans and sea turtles in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. CIMWI’s jurisdiction encompasses 153 miles of coastline (from the San Luis Obispo/Santa Barbara County line south to the Ventura/Los Angeles County line).
You play a critical role in our organization’s success in responding to marine mammals in distress as we rely on you to report these animals to the CIMWI Rescue Hotline,.
