Mote’s Stranding Investigations Program responds 24 hours a day, 365 days per year, to reports of injured, sick or dead marine mammals and sea turtles in Mote’s local area, Sarasota and Manatee counties in southwest Florida. Gretchen Lovewell, Manager of this program, tells Hayley and Joe what it takes to rescue dolphins and other animals in need, what people can expect when they call Mote’s stranding pager, and about the occasional “false alarm” calls that add surprising humor to a challenging job. (To report stranded marine life in Sarasota and Manatee counties, call this program at 941-988-0212.)
