Silent Auction

Saturday afternoon, just before the banquet - donate an item and help us raise money to help the whales!
Your donation(s) will be displayed prominently during the Silent Auction of this well-attended, international conference. The auction will be open just before the banquet, where several world-renowned whale biologists will present. Please email our silent auction coordinator Shari Bookstaff at [email protected] to make arrangements for donation or for inquiries.

We hold a silent auction at each conference, offering unique marine life items (and other cool stuff) for bid. We are looking for new items:

Marine life clothing, jewelry, artwork
Movie passes (chain)
Wind chimes
Whale watching tickets
Garden decor
Stuffed animals/toys
Sports memorabilia
Exotic vacation
Food delicacies
Gift Certificates
Framed photos

 ...or almost any other marine or cetacean item

Think about what YOU would buy at a whale auction! Keep in mind that the conference is held in Southern California, but many of our conference attendees (our bidders) travel a long way to get there. Try to resist large or local items.


Thank you to all our generous silent auction donors!
