Each year, in South Carolina, we see about 65-80 marine mammals strand. While most coastal states have 5-15 stranding response teams, here in South Carolina, we only have one. LMMN works in partnership with The South Carolina Marine Mammal Stranding Network (SCMMSN), lead by Coastal Carolina, to help respond to these strandings all along the state's coastline. By responding to these strandings we are able to gather valuable data on the species as well as the health of our coastline. With this information, we are able to better protect our local marine mammals.
If you would like to support our stranding network, consider purchasing something off the amazon wishlist.
