“Friends from the Field” Webinar Series
Thursday, December 3, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Blue Hill Heritage Trust and Island Heritage Trust are co-hosting a webinar series titled “Friends from the Field,” featuring local naturalists, professionals from environmentally focused organizations and outdoor learning experts to share their knowledge, virtually, during a time when we can’t all be out in the field together.
The webinars take place live from 4-5 p.m.
Scheduled for Dec. 3 is “Marine Mammal Stranding Response in the Northern Half of Maine” with Rosemary Seton, a marine mammal stranding coordinator with Allied Whale, the marine mammal lab at the College of the Atlantic. Seton will discuss the logistics of stranding response in the region Allied Whale covers, which is Midcoast Maine (Rockland) to the Canadian border. She will present the usual suspects of marine mammal species we find on and off our shores and what to do if you find a marine mammal in distress. And as seals make up the preponderance of Allied Whale’s stranding response, she will help you understand seal behavior when viewing them on land or sea keeping in mind that not every seal needs rescuing. Seton has worked with marine mammals for over 30 years mainly in her native Canada and the USA.
