University of Florida Marine Animal Rescue
UFMarineAnimalRescue

Thank you to all those who attended our first UF Marine Animal Rescue Volunteer Training for coastal residents! We had a great turn out and hope that each of you learned how we, as first responders, safely respond to cetacean strandings on the Nature Coast. Volunteers are crucial to stranding networks as they act as our eyes out on the water. We are very excited to have our brand new volunteers on the team! If you are interested in volunteering for the UF Marine Animal Rescue Team and live in or near the Nature Coast, please e-mail Stranding Biologist Mackenzie Russell at russell.m@ufl.edu. To report a stranded marine animal in Levy, Dixie, or Taylor counties, please call UF's 24/7 Marine Animal Rescue Hotline at 352-477-0344.

Barbecues are popular on Memorial Day. Remember to keep a close eye on the food your children eat. Hot dogs and grapes can be especially dangerous to young children.
