Marine Mammals of Maine talk hosted by Rockland Public Library Aug. 6

ROCKLAND — Rockland Public Library will host Marine Mammals of Maine (MMoME) Thursday, Aug. 6 at 6:30 p.m., for a virtual talk titled “A Seal’s Journey.” Jessica Woodend from MMoME will take the audience through a seal’s journey, from stranding to release, covering many of the obstacles in between.

The talk will start by addressing some common questions, such as whether it’s normal for seals to be out of the water, and why you might see a baby seal on its own. Woodend will then dive into the details of when and why seals need our help. You will also learn what MMoME is, what they do, the animals they care for and how you might help.

To request the link to attend via Zoom, email sbillings@rocklandmaine.gov by 4 p.m. on the day of the event.
