Here is a chance for more continuing education. The American Cetacean Society is sponsoring a talk “Scientific Snapshot- A Second Chance for Mexico’s Marine Wildlife”. The talk will held virtually on Zoom next Wednesday, March 10 at 7pm.

Centro de Rescate in La Paz, Baja California Sur, is a rescue center devoted to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of stranded, injured, sick and entangled marine wildlife. This uniquely situated program aids both the Pacific Coast of Baja California and the Gulf of California, and all of Mexico. The majority of animals brought to the rehabilitation center are California sea lions, seals, endangered Guadalupe fur seals, and sea turtles, and the occasional dolphin.

About the Speaker: Ricky Rebolledo, the Director of Operations for Centro de Rescate, is a native of Mexico who has worked as a marine mammal specialist and conservation officer for more than 25 years, including VaquitaCPR; RABEN, the Mexican whale disentanglement network; and the global disentanglement network for large cetaceans. Ricky also works with local and international organizations that include researchers, fishermen, tour operators and citizen scientists devoted to conserve and protect marine wildlife.
