Marine Mammal Commission

Annual Reports

Every year since 1973, the Marine Mammal Commission has published an annual report highlighting our projects, activities and accomplishments for the previous year. Our annual reports are one of several publications that we release on an annual basis to highlight our work and the most pressing issues impacting marine mammals and their environment.
