Fish, sharks, squid, and sea turtles aren’t the only animals that strand on the coast.  Mammals and birds are often quite common strandings.  For more information on these and other strandings, as well as marine debris and invasive species sightings, check out the sites below!  Many of these organizations have excellent volunteer programs, so be sure to check those out as well.
