#19- MAMMAL ON TIDELINE – 24/07/2020

BARB’s Marine Mammal Medics were contacted by Brean Parish Council’s beach manager at 10am regarding a mammal stranded on the tideline on the beach.
BARB attended the scene and quickly found a porpoise which was sadly deceased and had several injuries on its body, possibly from a boat.
BARB’s Marine Mammal Medics are fully trained and qualified to carry our rescues of mammals like this and give them immediate care, but unfortunately that wasn’t required here.
We informed our colleagues at British Divers Marine Life Rescue, who formally logged the stranding, and we were stood down. The Parish Council was arranging for the safe removal of the porpoise.
