NWWB Meeting August 18th Marine Biologist, Casey Mclean, On Rescuing Marine Life

One of the pleasures of boating in the Northwest is observing and learning about the marine life. Next Monday we are excited to have Marine Biologist, Casey Mclean, founder of the Soundside Marinelife Rescue Center. Casey’s love of the Pacific Northwest and passion for marine mammals, has made her determined to provide a facility that can help rehabilitate marine animals and inspire the community to protect the marine environment.

Casey is actively working to create a hospital for marine wildlife something needed in the Northwest. She educates the general population about Soundside Marinelife Rescue Center helping people learn about rescuing sea life including issues such as how different species are rehabilitated and who to call. She will help us recognize and be more aware of the needs in our area.

After graduating from University of Tampa as a Marine Biologist, Casey honed her skills working with Clearwater Marine Aquarium and the Florida Research Institute in marine mammal rehabilitation, research, and public education. From Boston to Alaska, Casey has worked on projects involving Humpback whales, Steller Sea lions and rehabilitation of sea turtles. She is currently involved with the regional Marine Mammal Stranding Network.

Come relax and enjoy the evening.
