Topic: Marine Mammals Ashore - Quantifying and Interpreting Stranding Events
Stranding events offer a wealth of information to researchers and resource managers by providing valuable insights into the lives of marine mammals, including their seasonal distributions, natural history, environmental contaminant levels, impacts due to human interactions, and incidence of disease. Jim will provide an overview of the work of the Oregon Marine Mammal Stranding Network and present a summary of stranding trends and case investigations.
