What size t-shirt do you wear?  We are setting up our annual auction, and you can help!  Secure an auction item for us, and we’ll send you our Mt Fuji design Save Japan Dolphins organic t-shirt.

Earth Island’s International Marine Mammal Project is excited to launch our annual auction through, which will be online for three weeks beginning April 6. Our promotion will reach hundreds of thousands of our supporters and Charitybuzz’s extensive circle of bidders. It’s a great place to promote to a sophisticated new audience.

All monies raised will be used to fund our campaigns to protect dolphins and whales from exploitation and slaughter around the globe. 


We Need Your ideas and Donations!  

Do you have an idea for an auction item, or do you know someone who might be interested in donating? Is your second cousin Leonardo DiCaprio, or are you buds with Tim Cook?  Do your friends own a SCUBA or whale-watch business? Our focus is travel, resort and vacation rentals, marine adventures, celebrity and luminary opportunities, entertainment, and more.  The most valuable offerings are ones not available on the open market, and items can be situated literally anywhere in the world. 

Charitybuzz requires that each listing have a minimum retail value of $500, and all items for this auction need to be redeemable within one year of the closing of the auction, scheduled for April 26, 2016. The rest is up to your wild imagination. The ocean’s the limit!

We’ve had great donations from the New York Yankees, Dr. Sylvia Earle, Laird Hamilton, Heart, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Graham Nash, Jack Johnson, Nervo, Tony Danza, Lesley Nicol (Downton Abbey) and more. Click here to see some of the top donations from our last two auctions. 

Auction items donated in the U.S. are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law, since Earth Island is a 501c3 registered non-profit.   

Thanks for helping to keep dolphins and whales wild and free!
