DCP Deep Dive: Marine Mammals, Human Impacts, and Conservation

This webinar was recorded on 28 Sept 2022.

Every year there are thousands of reports of sick, injured, and dead marine mammals throughout the United States. In this talk, Brooke from Lowcountry Marine Mammal Network goes over three of the biggest human impacts marine mammals face: human interaction, plastic pollution, and shipping traffic. We will also discuss how conservation works and ways you can get involved!

Brooke is the outreach coordinator for Charleston-based nonprofit, Lowcountry Marine Mammal Network. As outreach coordinator, she organizes & runs education programs, events, stranding responses, volunteers, dolphin monitoring, social media outreach, and more. DCP is very excited to have her join us!
