Marine Mammal Rescue and Rehabilitation

MARI620

Description

The primary goal of marine mammal rescue and rehabilitation is to release health animals back into the wild. In this class students will learn about the methods used to rescue and rehabilitate marine mammals, including cetaceans, manatees, walrus, seals, and sea lions. Students will follow the steps of rescue from notification through assessment, examination and standard rehabilitation practices, and transportation methods and release protocols. Government programs that guide the protocols of marine mammal rescue, public relations, and funding needed to support rescue operations will also be reviewed. Students will draft their own animal rescue plan from the initial encounter to release or permanent housing.
