Alaska SeaLife Center Stranding Hotline Update
November 13, 2019

Seward, Alaska (November 6, 2019) – The Alaska SeaLife Center’s (ASLC) Stranding Hotline is still only working intermittently due to technical difficulties. The team at ASLC is working quickly to solve the issues, but as of now are unsure when it will be fully operational.

In the meantime, below are the ways to reach our team if you have information about a stranded or injured marine mammal.

Since the Center responds to 33,904 miles of coastline, stranding partners and civilians are critical and crucial in assisting the Center with wildlife response calls.

If a sick or injured animal is encountered, staff urges people to e-mail or call first, observe at a safe distance, respect the animal’s territory, and keep pets and children away.

The Alaska SeaLife Center is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and the only permitted marine mammal rehabilitation center in Alaska. Over 80% of the funding for ASLC’s Wildlife Response Program comes from charitable donations. The Center is thankful for organizations like SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund, BP Alaska, ConocoPhillips Alaska, GCI and PetZoo whose generous support helps ASLC care for marine mammals like sea otters.

It generates and shares scientific knowledge to promote understanding and stewardship of Alaska’s marine ecosystems. The ASLC is an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
