Kathi George is the Global Response Project Manager for the Marine Mammal Center located in Sausalito, CA. She has over 15 years of experience with marine mammal entanglements, specializing in entangled whale response. She’s been on several large whale entanglement cases and trained many volunteers on how disentangle a whale. Kathi and I have been friends for several years now. We met when she first started the California Whale Rescue a non-profit dedicated to serving the community of volunteers who help to untangle entangled whales. Through working together, we came up with a budget and scope to help volunteers, through my efforts during my Sea Grant Fellowship I was able to secure their first major funds that would get the nonprofit off the ground. Since then with Kathi’s leadership she has partnered with one of the biggest marine mammal rescues in California and is leading other amazing projects related to her new role, which I can’t wait to learn more about in this discussion today.
