Alaska Marine Mammal Stranding Network

A stranded animal is one that is dead on the beach or in the water, one that is alive on land and unable to return to the water and/or in need of medical attention, or a live animal in the water that is unable to return to its natural habitat under its own power or without assistance. Please let us know if you see injured, entangled or dead marine mammals. Call the NOAA Fisheries statewide 24-hour Stranding Hotline: (877) 925-7773.
