Dolphin Marine Magic (DMM) are hosting training for responding to marine fauna events for the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) over the next two weeks. The training kicks off at DMM this week before courses in Sydney and the South coast the following week. “We developed this training with TAFE NSW to assist NPWS with how they respond the whales, dolphins, seals and turtles that come ashore. The goal of the course is to make sure that stranded individuals receive the best possible first aid to increase the chances that they can be released. When this can’t happen, we also cover what samples to take so the causes of the stranding can be investigated” said Dr Duan March, of DMM. Susan Crocetti from NPWS make up the rest of the team delivering the training for TAFE NSW.
