Earning Our “Seal”

SSC Seal of Approval

To earn our Seal of Approval Eco-label and the ability to include the “seal” in your marketing strategy, you must:

  • Participate in a free-of-charge staff-training, hosted by SSC’s Marine Mammal Rescue staff. 
  • Bring an MMR team member (trained naturalist) aboard your kayaking tours to ensure that wildlife distancing guidelines are being followed and marine mammal education is being delivered.
  • Pay Seacoast Science Center a fee of $100 per MMR naturalist-assisted program.
  • Carry MMR educational rack cards at your business’ physical location. 
  • If your business owns dock-space, work with MMR to install educational signage. 
  • Participate in citizen science data collection (details to be provided). 

In addition, Seacoast Science Center will cross-promote your Seal of Approval kayaking tour programs that carry our eco-label.
