Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Dolphin & Whale 911 app enables you to immediately report live or dead stranded, injured, or entangled dolphins, whales, and seals in the Southeastern United States (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands). Your report will immediately go to trained and authorized emergency responders in the Southeast U.S. Marine Mammal Stranding Network. This app enables you to report dead marine mammals, as well as live marine mammals in distress and in need of assistance. Your quick reporting may help save an animal’s life by providing rescuers with real time information about the location and kind of marine mammal in trouble and allows scientists to collect valuable information that will help marine mammal conservation.
This app allows you to:
> Report live or dead stranded, injured or entangled marine mammals by connecting you to the nearest stranding response hotline, so that trained responders and veterinarians can recover or rescue the animal.
> Send a time/date/GPS coordinate stamped photo of the animal to the Marine Mammal Stranding Network.
> Identify the animal by providing an electronic field guide of marine mammals found in the Southeastern U.S.
> Help rescue live and dead marine mammals by providing you with a list of “do’s and don’ts” or tips on what to do when you find a live or dead stranded dolphin, whale, or seal.

Such an awesome concept and a great idea, no one is without their phone nowadays and you never know when or if you'll find a stranded animal.
I especially liked the ID section. Looks good on an iPad, too.
