Social distancing has been “a thing” when it comes to seals on the beach, or any marine mammal, for quite some time! Find out why it is so critically important to “seal distance” and learn more about marine mammals in New England by joining us for our first Marine Mammals of the Northeast Atlantic Webinar Series event on Thursday, May 21 at 6pm.
Seacoast Science Center and National Marine Life Center are teaming up to discuss how YOU can help to protect seals this beach season. You’ll find out what seal species frequent our waters and learn all about harbor seal pupping season, the Marine Mammal Protection Act, and respecting the space of wild animals. You’ll also have the opportunity to engage directly with the experts during a Q&A session!
– Brian Yurasits, Seacoast Science Center Marine Mammal Rescue Outreach Coordinator
– Geneva Mommsen, National Marine Life Center Education and Volunteer Coordinator
– Ainsley Smith, Regional Marine Mammal Stranding Coordinator in partnership with NOAA
Arm yourself with knowledge and become a local ocean hero!

When Seacoast Science Center responds to a seal-in-need, our team transports the animal to the National Marine Life Center’s rehabilitation facility in Bourne, MA. This journey is 118 MILES, and gives every seal we rescue a second chance to live free and healthy. By donating $10.00 to represent 1 mile of this journey, you can help us raise enough money to bring 4 SEALS to rehabilitation this beach season.
