Keith Rittmaster, Natural Science Curator at the NC Maritime Museum, extends industrial strength gratitude to the following donors who conspired to fund a new outboard motor for the Friends of the Museum boat “Spyhop”. Keith uses the boat to benefit NC students, citizens, and marine wildlife in all aspects of his work that includes responding to marine mammal strandings and entanglements, maintaining monofilament fishing line receptacles, research and educational field trips, and continuing the local long-term (since 1985) bottlenose dolphin photo-identification project. Thank you!!
