Do you know what to do if you find a stranded marine animal on the beach? First, keep your distance. If the animal is in distress, approaching them could cause them to attack. Some also carry diseases. Watch from a distance and look for injuries or markings. Is it thin, wounded or does it have a tag? Those will be important for your next step and that is, call an animal rescue center. You will need to stay near the animal until they arrive to make sure no other animals approach.
