The mission of the Virginia Aquarium Stranding Response Program (VAQS) is to promote the conservation of marine animal species through response, research, rehabilitation and education. The VAQS is largely a volunteer-based group (the Stranding Team) operating from a Stranding Center located in Virginia Beach. Stranding Team personnel are permitted by state and federal authorities to respond to marine mammal and sea turtle strandings. The Stranding Response Program is supported by the donations of goods and services from the community and grant-making organizations. To report a dead or live stranded marine mammal or sea turtle in Virginia, call the VAQS hotline at 757-437-6159.
