Protecting marine mammals through science, awareness, and conservation.
The mission of The Lowcountry Marine Mammal Network is to protect local marine mammals for future generations through quality science, public outreach and conserving their environment.
How To Help a Marine Mammal
REPORT a stranded marine mammal (dead or alive) to SCDNR’s Wildlife stranding hotline at: 1.800.922.5431
DO NOT APPROACH, touch, or attempt to push a stranded marine mammal back into the water. These animals are sick and wild.
DO NOT HARASS marine mammals. Any disturbance to aniamls by our behavior can be considered harassment and fined up to 100k. Put your engine in neutral. Never follow, chase or approach a marine mammal.
AVOID approaching dolphins within 50 yards from a vessel and 15 yards on land.
DO NOT FEED any marine mammal. Feeding animals can make them desensitized to humans and boats and can result in aggressive behavior and boat strikes.
CLEAN UP trash and garbage. Marine mammals will confuse trash for food and ingest foreign objects, resulting in illness and death.
