Your support helps our conservation efforts


New York City's own Whale Research and Advocacy Organization

Gotham Whale - a not-for-profit Citizen Scientist project

Supported by your volunteer effort and generous donations

Since 2009, Gotham Whale has been an all volunteer effort, combining the interest and enthusiasm of some dedicated individuals.  We are now gaining recognition and are looking to grow our organization in response to the need and interest in our work.  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.

As of June, Gotham Whale received its 501 c 3 Determination Letter from the IRS to establish itself as Gotham Whale, Inc. a not-for-profit corporation, DLN # 26053643002615 under which donors can deduct contributions, bequests, devises, transfers, and gifts. 

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