Project Jonah is a registered charity that exist for one simple reason – marine mammals desperately need help. Their vision is to create a world where these animals are respected and protected.
Project Jonah’s strength comes from their volunteers; everyday Kiwis that give up their time to help marine mammals through rescue, action and protection programs. Whether they’re picking up litter on beaches or getting hands on in rescuing stranded whales, they’re out there helping. Whatever the weather.
Project Jonah a New Zealand organisation, with a distinct flavour and feel. We pride ourselves on being passionate, honest, open and down to earth – things that Kiwis are well known for, both here and overseas.
As a voluntary organisation Project Jonah needs to do a lot with a little. They have pioneered whale rescue techniques, and have shared this technology and expertise with the rest of the world. Much of their work comes from a practical ‘let’s just do it’ approach.
At the heart of Project Jonah is a passionate belief that caring about marine mammals is simply the right thing to do. Caring about the welfare of these animals; their suffering and their needs. And though we make decisions using our heads, we do what we do because our hearts are connected with this absolutely vital work.
At Project Jonah they believe that both animals and people matter. Whilst the animals are central to what they do, it’s people that make their work possible. New Zealand can lead the world in marine mammal welfare and protection. Your help puts Project Jonah closer to that goal.
