It seems like we can't go a week without seeing a marine animal stranded on a beach. Would you know what to do and how to report a stranding?
Here are the do's and don'ts from the Clearwater Marine Aquarium if you encounter a stranded animal:
• Don't push the animal back into the water.
• Do be careful.
• Do keep water out of the animal's blowhole.
• Do protect the animal's skin.
• Don't use common sunscreens.
• Do keep them cool.
• Do protect their eyes.
• Don't let the animal become stressed.
