Learn about rescuing stranded marine animals

Here’s a cool opportunity to mingle with more than 50 scientists, marine animal specialists, managers, educators, stranding network volunteers, and others who will be sharing the latest knowledge about marine animal strandings, disease, rescue, and rehabilitation. Anyone can purchase a day pass to attend the Northeast Region Stranding Network conference, cohosted by the College of the Atlantic’s Allied Whale and the Bar Harbor Club, May 7-9.

Highlights include a talk by Steve Katona, marine biologist and former COA president, and Andrew Newbould, marine mammal advisor at the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans; a workshop on large whalenecropsies with COA 1988 alumnus Bill McLellan, now North Carolina State Stranding Coordinator; and a sea turtle disentanglement workshop.

Conference registration is $100; day passes are $50. Students from the University of New England, the University of Maine School for Marine Sciences, or College of the Atlantic can attend for free with a valid student identification card.
