Stranding Data By States

The network is composed of cooperating scientific investigators and institutions, volunteer networks and individuals within Washington, Oregon, and California. Other organizations also involved are wildlife and fisheries agencies and state and federal law enforcement. Participants are trained in systematic data collection and are experienced in handling a variety of marine mammal stranding related tasks. Data are collected for inclusion in a national database to establish baseline information on marine mammal communities and monitor their health.
