from stranding to release, and the many obstacles in between

Marine Mammals of Maine presents ‘A Seal’s Journey’

Event has passed

Rockland Public Library will host Marine Mammals of Maine (MMoME) on Thursday, August 6, at 6:30 p.m., for a virtual talk via Zoom entitled “A Seal’s Journey.”

Jessica Woodend, from MMoME, will take the audience through a seal’s journey, from stranding to release, covering many of the obstacles in between. The talk will start by addressing some common questions, such as whether it’s normal for seals to be out of the water, and why you might see a baby seal on its own. Woodend will then dive into the details of when and why seals need our help.

You will also learn what MMoME is, what they do, the animals they care for, and how you might help, according to the Library, in a news release.

Jessica Woodend has been a wildlife educator throughout the country for the past 13 years, with the last eight years spent here in Maine. She has volunteered with Marine Mammals of Maine for four years, helping with education, animal care, and animal rescue/response.
