Volunteer Opportunities With Dauphin Island Sea Lab
Volunteers are being solicited to help the Dauphin Island Sea Lab Marine Mammal Research Program respond to strandings and marine mammal distress calls. The group has responded to more than 40 stranded whales and dolphins and one manatee in the first half of this year. Most of those instances included the help volunteers.
Volunteer response can include securing carcasses, confirming strandings/species/size of the animal, assisting during live and deceased animal response, and assisting with outreach events to help raise awareness about marine mammals in Alabama. Training is required for all volunteers. For more info, email email@example.com. If you see a sick, injured, or deceased marine mammal in Alabama, please call 1-877-WHALE-HELP.
