Animal Rescue Program First Responder Certification Class
Thursday, December 8, 2022
As Mystic Aquarium’s Animal Rescue Program, we respond to a variety of sick, injured and stranded marine animals and sea turtles along 1,000 miles of coastline throughout Connecticut, Rhode Island and Fishers Island, New York. Since our coverage area is so large, our First Responders are often the first eyes on scene for us and we rely on them to report back to us when conducting a health assessment of an animal out in the field if we are unable to get out there right away! This class would serve as the training and certification course to become a First Responder for our Animal Rescue Program. You do not need to have any prior marine mammal or sea turtle experience. One of our favorite things about our first responder program is that it brings together people from all different areas of work with different levels of experience. This class and volunteer program fosters a great environment for learning and we are happy to have anyone join that is interested!
