Murres everywhere!

November, 18th 2015

This past week has been intense! Over 30 Common Murres have been brought to ASLC's rehabilitation staff. People are finding them in the most unusual places, many miles away from the ocean. Besides having varying degrees of malnourishment, the birds appear to be in good health.

Still coming in strong

Hungry murres continue to show up all over Seward and outlying areas. People are encouraged to return the birds to the water if they are found on land and are alert. ASLC's rehabilitation staff has examined and released over 60 murres so far to try to give them a second chance.

Good luck murres!

Over 100 murres were brought in to the Alaska SeaLife Center during this event. The last one came in a week ago - we're keeping our fingers crossed that they've found their food source and can return to sea.
