Protecting our most precious resources - our children and our wildlife
The Wes Strong Foundation has partnered with local wildlife rehabbers to support their efforts in performing care and treatment to local injured wildlife in the Hampton Roads area before releasing them back into the wild. Your donation can help with medical supplies, building materials, and dietary needs for the animals.
Did you know that 80% of marine pollution comes from land-based sources?
Did you know that 6.5 million tons of litter enter the world's oceans each year?
Did you know worldwide, 100,000 marine mammals and turtles are killed annually by plastic litter?
Wes' final wish was to inspire others to keep our waters clean and save the wildlife. It is our mission to keep his legacy alive. Let The Wes Strong Foundation know that you too are #InspiredByWes. Plan your own #InspiredByWes clean-up in your community. Notify us of your upcoming event, and we will share it on social media. Be sure to let us know your findings once the event has passed. With your help, we can make it a global movement so our animals no longer have to suffer. Let's make a difference!
