Sturgis School Students Develop & Demonstrate New Dolphin Rescue Carrier!

Kudos to students at Sturgis Charter Public School who have developed an innovative new carrier to rescue stranded Dolphins and other marine mammals. The carrier was recently demonstrated at Grays Beach, YarmouthPort. The students, under the guidance of their Science teacher Dr. Pete Sampou, were funded with a Lemelson-MIT grant, worked in partnership with International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), and engineers from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. One of the main features of the carrier is its “pouch-like” design for holding mammals, which is better for their internal organs – a more solid flat surface is being used now. It’s possible that the Sturgis Dolphin Rescue Carrier will be adopted internationally by marine mammal scientists and rescue crews!

As a child, spending summers in North Truro, I thought Cape Cod began at the Wellfleet Drive-In and ended at Provincetown. As a photographer, I now know that all the Cape towns leading to the canal have their own unique beauty and charm.

Roughly 30 years ago, I had the good fortune to work with the legendary photographer Dick Kelsey and as owner of Kelsey-Kennard have specialized in aerial photography as well as landscape/scenic, portraits, weddings, and photographing events on the Cape, the Islands, and beyond.

Photographs from our Gallery in Chatham are displayed in homes and businesses locally and world-wide.

Besides photography I also enjoy boating/ fishing (fish are usually very safe when I’m out there,) gardening and tennis. Cape Cod is a very special place and I look forward to sharing my images with you as I travel about.
