FAU's Harbor Branch to be featured on ABC's Hit Show "Sea Rescues"




Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) will be featured on two upcoming episodes of the popular national television show “Sea Rescue” on local ABC stations at 10:30 a.m. (WPBF West Palm Beach) and noon (WPLG Miami) on the following Saturdays: May 4 and July 13.

Both episodes will feature marine mammal rescue efforts that included members of the FAU Harbor Branch Marine Mammal Research and Conservation (MMRC) Program.

“Sea Rescue” airs nationally on more than 95 percent of the country’s ABC affiliates on Saturday mornings during Litton’s Weekend Adventure. The show is hosted by environmental journalist and “Good Morning America” weather anchor Sam Champion.

Currently in its second season, Sea Rescue tells the stories of marine animal rescue, rehabilitation and release by the dedicated men and women of SeaWorld’s wildlife rescue teams and partner organizations including the Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI).

MMRC is a first responder for the National Marine Fisheries Service Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Response Network, which also includes the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the Marine Mammal Conservancy, SeaWorld, Georgia Aquarium Field Station and Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute. MMRC rescue efforts are funded in part by the Florida “Protect Wild Dolphins” and “Protect Florida Whales” specialty license plates.
