Marine Animal Response & Necropsy Webinar and Q&A
July 20, 2020
By Speakers: Sean Brillant, Senior Conservation Biologist at CWF; Tonya Wimmer, Executive Director of the Marine Animal Response Society
Every year, more than 1,000 marine animal incidents are reported in Canada. Sean and Tonya will discuss the importance of responding to marine animal emergencies, and the essential conservation role you and other Canadians can play by reporting incidents. Sadly, some of these incidents have tragic endings. When a marine animal dies, a necropsy (or autopsy) can help us better understand and conserve marine wildlife. Tonya will share her experience participating in North Atlantic Right Whale necropsies, and we’ll discuss ways we can work together to conserve this important and critically endangered species.
