Scottish Marine Animal Strandings Scheme
SMASS provides a systematic and coordinated approach to the surveillance of cetacean, basking shark and turtle strandings in Scotland.
The project aims to collate, analyse and report standings to determine cause of death and determine if any substantial new diseases that could threaten the conservation status of marine megafauna.
If you find a DEAD, stranded marine animal please call 01463 243030 or 07979 245893.
The Clyde Marine Mammal Project is interested to hear about any stranding in the Clyde area and has resources to assist recovery of stranded animals. Sorcha Cantwell and Samantha King attend most strandings around the Clyde, are trustees of CMMP and coordinators for SMASS and BDMLR.
