Action C.3: Improvement of marine animals stranding and rehabilitation networks in mainland Portugal

In this action the main objective is to improve the responsiveness of dead and live stranding networks (marine mammals, seabirds and sea turtles). In order to improve the effectiveness of such networks, a number of improvements in performance methodologies and equipment were applied, thus increasing the ability to detect animals and respond to stranding situations along the Portuguese coast.

The strandings networks have been improved through the provision of diagnostic equipment, an ambulance for rescue of marine animals and through two support infrastructures. For more information on the results of this action, please refer to the following documents:
