Sea crea­ture res­cue class

Albany Advertiser - - NEWS - Saskia Adysti

Al­bany ma­rine mam­mals’ en­thu­si­asts are in­vited to at­tend a ma­rine an­i­mals res­cue train­ing ses­sion held by Or­gan­i­sa­tion for the Res­cue and Re­search of Ce­taceans in Aus­tralia.

ORRCA has more than 170 trained mem­bers in WA, and is look­ing to broaden its Al­bany team due to the num­ber of ma­rine mam­mals’ in­ci­dents in the area.

ORRCA pres­i­dent Jacque­line O’Neill said that in the past 12 months there had been three seals hauled out of in­ci­dents in Al­bany, all at­tended by ORRCA mem­bers.

ORRCA train­ing is a one-day course with the­ory and lec­tures in the morn­ing and prac­ti­cal ex­er­cises in the af­ter­noon.

The work­shop will be held on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27, from 8.30am at a DPaW fa­cil­ity in Al­bany.
