When I got back home, I called the Cape Cod Stranding Network. They asked if I had taken a photograph which I hadn't but said if it'd be helpful, I'd soooooooo go back and do that. It would be incredibly helpful they said. So....off I go. With a mission.
I thought you might be interested in coming along for a little field work for the Cape Cod Stranding Network. Let's walk:
Most of the strandings of whales, porpoises, dolphins, and seals in Cape Cod occur in the Wellfleet Bay area. The reasons are not fully understood but scientists and residents agree that the geographical formations of the area create confusion for these animals. Some say there is something of a magnetic anomaly within the bay. Animals that use sonar to help with orientation often become disoriented within the bay. Very interesting.....and tragic. The Cape Cod Stranding Network is busy collecting information on every reported animal and through this information they'll continue to learn....
Thanks for coming, fellow friends of the sea~
