An Introduction to Working Maritime Pets
Patricia Sullivan, founder and COO of the Museum of Maritime Pets, will present a talk highlighting working maritime animals throughout history.
From mascots to messengers and more, maritime animals have lived and served alongside people for millennia. Since humans first launched boats, animals have performed many endearing and courageous acts, sometimes saving lives and carrying out crucial missions. Sullivan will discuss the variety of roles animals have played during war and peacetime at sea.
The Museum of Maritime Pets, located at 75 Mechanic Street in Rockland, researches and documents the lives of seafaring animals from ancient times until the present. Its permanent and changing exhibits, research library, and gift shop are open year-round on weekends from 12-4 and during the week by appointment.
