Don't come ashore! Rescue resources for annual stranding seasonDon't come ashore! Rescue resources for annual stranding seasonhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=154982017-01-03T06:00:00Z2017-01-04T00:30:00Z​​​​TEXAS COAST – SeaWorld San Antonio and The Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network (TMMSN) announced an expanded partnership at a critical time.

January marks the beginning of the annual stranding season which is triggered by winter weather, changing water temperatures and the calving season.​​

​The partnership shores up rescue resources to assist marine mammals as the annual stranding season begins along the Texas Coast.

Over a three-year period, SeaWorld San Antonio is committing approximately $1.1 million in additional funding and resources, including:  
  • SeaWorld animal care professionals and veterinarians dedicated to work with TMMSN, and 
  • ​a new state-of-the-art facility at SeaWorld San Antonio to provide 24-hour care for sick and stranded animals that need long term rehabilitation. ​
    This facility will ease the burden on TMMSN's resources when rescued animals are in need of long term care. 

​"Protecting our marine mammals and the beautiful natural habitat of the gulf coast is important to the quality of life for all Texans," said State Senator Larry Taylor (R-Friendswood)​.​
