Animal rescue device / Cetacea stranded rescue stretcher

Animal rescue device

Cetacea stranded rescue stretcher allows visitors to help cetacea return to the sea when they see cetacea strands on the beach. The design of stretcher not only enables people to carry it effortlessly, but also reduce the possibility of touching cetacea. Also, the stretcher protects cetacea’s skin from scratching the beach on the way back to the sea.

The stretcher are inflatable, in order to protect and prevent cetacea’s skin from dehydration, the stretcher are made by skin-friendly material. At the two side of stretcher, we place handles and fluorescent strips so as to make it easier to carry and be noticed during night.
