An average day for Jim Rice of Oregon State University's Marine Mammal Institute, may involve climbing atop a washed up whale carcass, protecting seal pups on the beach or looking through numerous texts and emails with photos of stranded or dead seals, sea lions, whales and other marine mammals.
Jim is the Stranding Program Manager for the Oregon Marine Mammal Stranding Network and his workdays are very different from what many of us experience.
Tune in to learn about the Stranding Network and what to do if you see a stranded or dead marine mammal on the beach. Jim also talks about volunteer opportunities and shares interesting information about marine mammals.
