Nature Miramichi Monthly Meeting: The work of the Marine Animal Response Society

The work of the Marine Animal Response Society - Danielle Pinder, Volunteer Coordinator, Marine Animal Response Society (MARS)

MARS is dedicated to marine animal conservation through response, research and engagement. They operate an emergency hotline to report stranded, injured, entangled or dead marine animals in the Maritime Provinces.


About Our Speaker:

Danielle always knew she would be working with marine animals. Raised in central Canada, her passion for the marine world led her to Nova Scotia where she earned her BSc in Marine Biology and Environmental Sustainability from Dalhousie University. Ever the adventurer, Danielle moved to South Africa where she worked as a Field Specialist and Principal Investigator with Oceans Research in Mosselbay, focusing on great white shark research. While there she established a Marine Mammal Medic training program in collaboration with MARS. Returning to Canada, Danielle worked on acoustic analysis of whale species with Jasco Applied Sciences, as well as an at-sea, multi-species identification database for WWF-Canada. Danielle recently completed her Masters Degree in Wildlife Health and Conservation from Murdoch University in Perth, Australia. As part of her Masters program, she spent the summer of 2018 rehabilitating marine animals at the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Mammal Rescue Centre.

Keenly interested in marine animal response, Danielle began working with MARS in 2019. Since then, she has taken on many different responsibilities before landing in her current role of Manager of Response Operations. Danielle enjoys working with MARS to grow our response capabilities, ensuring that we are able to make as much impact as possible for these animals.
