Since our last Blog, we have not received any reports of marine mammal strandings in the Bahamas. We did, however begin plans to update the Bahamas Marine Mammal Stranding Network in the unfortunate event of a stranding. To this end, we contracted Felice Knowles to locate and inventory the three stranding kits located on Long Island. This was completed as well as updating the Contact Tree for Long Island members of the Stranding Network. We will be continuing this work throughout the Bahamas. We have also begun preparations for our Stranding Workshop for Veterinarians to be held in Nassau on December 10-12th, 2014.
