April 28 – Into the Blue - Galveston

One hundred fifty to two hundred marine mammals are saved each year by the Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network. When Heidi Whitehead and her volunteers get an emergency call, they drop everything they are doing, jump into their vehicles and head down to the beach, bayou or even deer leases to rescue stranded marine mammals. They cover about twelve hundred miles of coast line; now that’s a lot of territory to watch over.

Into the Blue is a fundraiser for this organization. The funds raised are used directly to help save marine mammals.

Listen in to Talk of the Bay as Heidi Whitehead, the State Operations Coordinator for TMMSN, tells us about the organization and how some of our marine mammal friends are doing.

Things to keep in mind if you find a stranded mammal.
1) Contact TMMSN immediate at 1-800-9MAMMAL
2) Stay with the animal and keep it upright so it can breath
3) Do NOT push it back into the water. These animals strand for a reason and pushing them back into the water may do more harm.
