Marine Mammal Center

The Marine Mammal Center began in 1975, rescuing sick and injured marine mammals along the California coastline. Since those humble beginnings more than 40 years ago, the Center has transformed into a veterinary teaching hospital that integrates day-to-day rescue and rehabilitation work with that of scientific research that explores the connections between marine mammal disease and ocean and human health. Over 1,000 individuals from all ages and walks of life currently volunteer for the Center, performing duties such as feeding animal patients, rescuing sick and injured animals, and teaching visiting school children about marine mammals. The Center also offers public education programs that reach over 30,000 school children each year and that actively encourage them to become stewards of our shared oceans.
