Donate today to ensure the future stewardship of our Great Lakes and their rich maritime heritage
When you make a tax-deductible donation to the Friends of Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary, you make a direct impact on the future of our Great Lakes, the largest surface freshwater system on Earth.
Your contribution stays right here in Thunder Bay, helping sanctuary experts conduct research and provide invaluable education, training, and community outreach for students of all ages—making your contribution more than charity, but an investment in the Great Lakes—84% of North America’s surface fresh water.
