What to do

In any situation involving the stranding of a wild specimen,  authorities and/or wildlife support teams should be contacted immediately.
Contacts 24h/day, 365 days/year (Portugal only):


SEPNA (Protection of Nature and Environment Service of the Portuguese National Guard):

(+351) 808 200 520 

(+351) 217 503 080

Remember, you should never put yourself or others at risk. Although weak, these are wild specimens that, when scared, can react aggressively to defend themselves.
