Join our Koret Foundation Veterinary Intern, Dr. Lorraine Barbosa, and Stranding Coordinator, Geno DeRango, as they give you the inside scoop on the Center's innovative darting techniques. How do you investigate an animal's injuries without disturbing it or the animals around it (while keeping humans safe, too)?

Learn how these rescuers carry out the sensitive practice of darting marine mammals at July's Members-Only night. Can’t wait 'til Members-Only Night? Check out the darting rescue attempt of "Clippy" the harbor seal here.
