It is a living cetacean
This type of stranding mainly concerns small cetaceans (dolphins, porpoises).
It is a live seal
Consult us to find out whether or not it is a real stranding because a seal lying on the coast is not necessarily in trouble! Most often it is young, tired and thinner individuals with very few reactions who are really in distress.
What if it’s a turtle?
It is the GTMF (Groupe Tortues Martines France) that manages turtle strandings. Set up in 2007, the GTMF takes over from the “Groupe Tortues Marines” created by the Ministry of Sustainable Development. It is run by the Natural Heritage Department of the National Museum of Natural History in Paris.
It brings together more than 150 members who are involved in the conservation of marine turtles through their missions and activities and care centres.
