UNCW stranding responders train volunteers how to respond to a live stranded cetacean. Undergraduate students learn how to properly respond to a live stranded cetacean.


Our Mission: To investigate strandings to improve our understanding of the biology of marine mammals that inhabit our local waters, so that we may enhance their conservation. To educate students through their participation in marine mammal stranding investigations.

We are made up of student volunteers, faculty and staff in the Department of Biology and Marine Biology. If you would like to volunteer, please let us know!
