Getting to Know Atlantic Marine Conservation Society

Interested in helping Atlantic Marine Conservation Society "AMSEAS" promote conservation of the marine environment through action? Join us for an information session!

We will discuss what our organization does and how you can get involved, including joining our volunteer program, participating in a beach cleanup, attending a lecture, and more. Conservation starts with you!

After getting to know AMSEAS, biologists will be discussing all of the effort that goes into examining deceased seals that was up on the beach. Demonstrations of the equipment used, including personal protective gear, will be included in this portion of the program. Necropsy examinations require a lot of support from our volunteer core, so this training is a great introduction to those who are interested in helping with that work.

Sea Turtle Presentation and Beach Walk

Atlantic Marine Conservation Society scientists will guide students on an interactive, educational walk on the beach. Students will be taught about the 4 species of sea turtles that utilize our waters seasonally and how human interaction threatens their lives during their time in our waters. We will discuss the seasonal occurrence “cold stunning,” or hypothermia in sea turtles, and what the community can do to help as we work to protect these threatened and endangered species. Following the lecture we will walk the beach to learn how to monitor the beaches for hypothermic sea turtles, and remove harmful marine debris along the way. Students will be encouraged to practice what they’ve learned by continuing to monitor their local beach throughout the fall and winter “cold stun season.”

Location: Squiretown Park, 62 Red Creek Road, Hampton Bays, NY 11946

An estimated 267 species of marine and avian life are impacted by our addiction to throw-away plastics, including whales, turtles, seals, and dolphins that populate the Long Island Sound and surrounding NY waters.

What we can we do to protect marine life and keep plastics out of Long Island Sound?

Join us for a free educational forum to hear leading experts in the field discuss impacts of plastic pollution on our wildlife, water, and communities. Find out how you can get involved in the fight against plastic pollution.
