Join Marine Mammals of Maine (MMoME) in the Picker Room and on Zoom on Thursday, September 7 at 6:00 PM as they take you through a seal’s journey from stranding to release, and all of the obstacles in between. We’ll start with seal basics, including whether it’s normal for them to be out of the water and why you might see a baby on its own, and then dive into when and why seals need our help. You will learn what MMoME is, what they do, the animals they care for, and how you can help.
This is a hybrid program and will take place in person in the Picker Room as well as on Zoom. To attend virtually, register here: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_xyxOkpR7R5GFygtM_h20Mw
