18 TUESDAY, JUNE 24- THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 2008 CAPE LIFE (?ape Gazette Marine mammals topic of Lewes lecture The second installment of the 2008 University of Delaware College of Marine and Earth Studies Ocean Currents Lecture Series will highlight the world of rescue and response for stranded sea mammals and turtles. The lecture will be given by Suzanne Thurman, founder and director of the Marine Educa- tion, Research & Rehabilita- tion Institute Inc. (MERR). MERR is the official strand- ing response organization for marine Suzanne Thurman mammals and sea turtles in Delaware and is the leading au- thority on whales, dolphins, por- poises, seals and sea turtles oc- curring along Delaware's coast and inland waterways. The free lecture will take place at 7 p.m., Thursday, June 26, in Room 104 of the Cannon Labora- tory at the University of Delaware's Hugh R. Sharp Cam- pus on Pilottown Road in Lewes. "Delaware forms a unique area of the Mid-Atlantic region, at- tracting an unusually wide diver- sity of species at the extent of their southern and northernmost ranges" Thurman said. 'As a re- sult, we experience 40 or more different species of endangered marine animals throughout the year." The lecture, titled Marine Mammals and Sea Turtles of the Delaware Coast, will focus on the fascinating natural history of these species, and will highlight specific stranding and rescue events for the more than 100 ani- mals that have stranded during the past year. The hour-long talk will in- clude a hands-on exhibit featur- ing artifacts and photos from many of the species that occur along the coast. It will include sea turtle shells, whale bones and much more. Light refreshments will be pro- vided at the event, which is free and open to the public. Seating is limited and reservations are rec- ommended. For reservations, or to check dates, times and topics of up- coming lectures, contact Peggy Conlon at or 645-4279.
