Mass Pilot Whale stranding/beaching in Florida Keys; a report from the front-line.
We, Ocean Rehab board members volunteered during past three days at the Marine Mammal Conservancy to help with the rehabilitation of 4 Stranded/Beached Pilot Whales, and here’s what we know.
Volunteers are needed 24 hours a day and 7 days a week at the Marine Mammal Conservancy until further notice.No one will be turned down when offering to help in any way.
And yes of course this weekend had thousands of Volunteers and Environmentalists from all sectors but we all know the novelty will soon wear out and MMC will be on their own.
4 teams of 3-4 people are needed just for the Whales (in the water) 24 hours a day.
a total of 25 volunteers are needed at all times to assist with multiple other necessary tasks.
We pledge ourselves to help with organizing volunteers for the future tasks at hand.
