Campfire Talk Series: Virginia Aquarium Stranding Team

Friday, September 15, 2017

Marine mammals and sea turtles are majestic and mysterious. They are meant to spend their lives in the ocean, but sometimes they become stranded on the shore. For over 20 years, Virginia Aquarium’s award-winning Stranding Response Program, led by trained staff and volunteers, has responded to more than 6,700 stranded marine mammals and sea turtles. They also rescue and rehabilitate live animals, investigate mortalities and conduct research about stranded animals. Come learn about a day in the life of the stranding team.
