Criteria for release of rehabilitated marine mammals / Pierre-Yves Daoust.: Fs70-5/2018-030E-PDF

“Guidelines on best practice with respect to release of rehabilitated marine mammals into Canadian waters are provided in this document. Guidelines or procedures at other marine mammal holding facilities, in other jurisdictions, or as recommended by international organizations were examined in order to formulate release criteria in light of the Canadian situation. Recommendations on release of rehabilitated marine mammals are developed with the objectives of optimising the welfare and survival of released individual, protecting wild populations, including those used by Indigenous peoples, ensuring public safety, and preventing attempts at wild animal rehabilitation and release by untrained individuals”--Abstract, p. iii.
