MARC or the Marine Animal Rescue Coalition is a collaboration focused on the difficult and often heartbreaking issue of the rescue of stranded whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals, turtles and other marine animals. It involves hundreds of people directly (i.e. as trained rescuers) and many thousands more indirectly. The success of this collaboration has come about because of the interest and hard work of a team of people who work both through the Coalition and their own organisations.
