BC Marine Mammal Response Network
IS LOOKING FOR PRIMARY RESPONDERS
The BCMMRN is a Fisheries and Oceans program which tracks natural and human caused threats to marine mammals and sea turtles in order to aid research and recovery. The Network’s members respond to reports of distressed or dead marine mammals and sea turtles to gather data and provide assistance where possible.
I had no idea. It is all voluntary, of course. And it is not like DFO has any boats at their disposal. But, they do seem to have a ‘program’ in place to keep track of such things.
So, I stand (seated, actually) corrected. Thanks, JW. Just one more thing out here amongst a gazillion that I have no clue about.
It is a veritable feast of learning out here. Every day!
