        Inferring the causes of a marine mammal’s stranding is difficult as the number of beached carcasses depends on many underlying processes (e.g. at-sea mortality, buoyancy, drift, and detection probability) [6,42,43]. The absence of stranding . Whether strandings are single or mass, strandings are a concern for conservationists and biologists. Determining the cause of a stranding or death of a stranded animal is difficult. Scientists must reconstruct what happened, but have little or no information about the animal’s history or the circumstances that preceded the stranding.

      Pygmy Killer Whales Rescued and Rehabilitated at IMMS – The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies (IMMS) has been actively involved in the rescue, rehabilitation, release and research of stranded marine animals since its establishment in We are an active participant of the National Stranding Network and respond to all reported marine mammal strandings . Data on marine mammal strandings are collected by the Southeast Marine Mammal Stranding Network. Basic data on the location, species identification, animal condition, and disposition (Level A data) are contributed by network members to the NOAA National Marine Mammal Stranding Database. Data collected since in the Southeast US and Caribbean are housed in the national database.

      To report marine animal strandings* call the department on A Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) officer in the relevant region will be contacted with your information and will determine the appropriate response.

Marine mammal strandings can sometimes involve national governments around the globe with specific challenges, in particular when they become a transboundary event. They can affect multiple jurisdictions, involve various policy sectors and require a rapid response, which must be delivered under conditions of media and social pressures.

The project involves detailed pathological and other investigations of stranded marine mammal carcasses (mostly cetacean) from UK waters. It forms. Conversely, large predators such as orca might cause other marine mammals to panic and strand. Other theories include magnetic anomalies, earthquakes, and underwater volcanoes.

Ingestion of marine debris can have lethal and sublethal effects on sea turtles and other wildlife. Although researchers have reported on ingestion of anthropogenic debris by marine turtles and implied incidences of debris ingestion have increased over time, there has not been a global synthesis of the phenomenon since   The Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network has need for a web savvy individual to perform freelance work to update and/or maintain the current TMMSN website and Facebook news feed.

As marine mammals and humans share a similar physiology, as well as diet and habitats in some regions, this deterioration also may impact human health. Marine mammals may be exposed to environmental stressors such as chemical pollutants, harmful algal blooms (HABs), pathogens, and man-made and natural disasters.

Marine Life in Distress Sea Turtle Stranding and Salvage Network. Members of the STSSN work together to inform the causes of sea turtle strandings by collecting data, documenting wounds and abnormalities, transporting sick and injured sea turtles to permitted rehabilitation facilities, and helping to educate the public about sea turtle conservation.The high numbers of strandings in March were limited to Matagorda, Brazoria, Galveston, and Jefferson counties with very few strandings (5 total) occurring along other areas of the Texas coastline.
