Gulf World Marine Institute (GWMI) would like to share the profiles of some of the animals that were rescued and survived the transport to our Stranding Care Center for rehabilitation. Depending on the situation, the mammals are rehabilitated and either released back into their natural habitat, or were deemed non-releasable by the National Marine Fisheries Service, and placed with an Alliance Accredited Marine Facilities that best suits the animals social standing. GWMI has also rescued and rehabilitated thousands of sea turtle patients. The goal is always to finish a successful rehabilitation and then provide the best course of action for the patient. A select few marine mammal and sea turtle patients can be seen here.
