Yesterday we worked with students from Avalon Park and Preserve in Stony Brookto conduct a land-based seal survey in. We observed two robust harbor seals hauled out offshore! Our team also collected 8.7 pounds of marine debris including balloons, balloon strings, and plastic bottles. Human impacts, like trash found on the beach, directly impact the health and safety of marine animals in our waters. Find out how you can help promote conservation through action by joining us for one of our upcoming lectures, seal cruises, or beach cleanups! Click the link in our profile to learn more.
