Is it a fish or is it a mammal? Tune into this presentation full of fun facts about dolphins, their biology, and how we study them. Find out about marine mammal strandings (what is that and why does it happen?), what NOAA does in response to one of these events, and how to find out more about the stranding network in your area. This webinar will be recorded and posted here (with English captions and Spanish subtitles) after going live. (Grades 2-8 but all ages will enjoy)
