The Marine Mammal Center helps so many! In addition to all their great work in CA, They have expanded to HI recently to help the very endangered monk seals. They provide opportunities for kids, teens and adults to volunteer as well as internships for teens to learn veterinary care. There are many educational programs at the Marine Mammal Center for the public to learn about keeping oceans clean and helping and interacting with marine animals. Money is raised not only ny donation, but also in creative ways through their store and classes.
Great organization helping marine life. Keeps the public informed and recommends
Things everyone can do to help on any level.
I've been watching the amazing work of MMC for years! The work they do is difficult and sometimes dangerous, yet they are always there for marine mammals in trouble. They make wonderful use of the volunteers who contribute to all aspects of life with seals, sea lions, otters, and whales! (Remember Humphrey the Humpback who wandered into San Francisco Bay?) The Marine Mammal Center does make use of medical and scientific experts for the best solutions to problems. They are ready also to experiment, try new approaches, ad lib when nothing else seems to work.
They have a wonderful center just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, and other locations (most recently in Hawaii). They have all kinds of support from donors and volunteers. A great place to visit.
A truly great organization where you see the results happening. They treat local marine mammals in trouble and have a high success rate.
If you are an animal lover and want to help our friends in the ocean, Marine Mammal Center is a wonderful organization that is saving lives every day. I know my money is going to good use there.
I have been a donor to MMC for a number of years, and have had the opportunity to visit the center on numerous occasions. The staff have always been helpful, I get regular updates on how things are going at the center, and the center itself is beautiful and well-kept, which is impressive. When I did a paper for a college class last spring, the contacts at MMC were tremendously helpful and their efforts were much appreciated. This is a group of folks who genuinely put the animals first, and I feel good about where my donations are going.
The Center's rehabilitation of injured/sick aquatic animals is laudable. They are an irreplaceable in asset in monitoring environmental effects on the aquatic ecosystem's inhabitants and protecting same.
The Marine Mammal Center, located in Sausalito, California, is an astounding organization of highly dedicated professionals and volunteers rescuing marine mammals who are found stranded on beaches all over the state. Their rescues include Pacific Harbor Seals, Northern Elephant Seals, California Sea Lions and others. This year, despite the pressure of a record number of strandings, the Marine Mammal Center has successfully rehabilitated scores of animals and released them back to the wild where they belong. I am impressed by their responsiveness, their efforts to educate those who may come upon stranded marine mammals, their expertise, and their efficient use of donations. I am a small donor yet they make me feel significant to their efforts, and I am able to rest assured that my dollars are wisely used. They communicate just enough to keep donors advised of their efforts. They deserve the support of those who care about our oceans and the mammals in them.
I'm not sure what the world would do without this wonderful organization. We need more people like this to help our friends who live in the ocean. I will always be a supporter and I strongly urge anyone who can help to do it!
This is Perfume, of who's release I witnessed on Sept 7th. While reading this article I found links to other released patients, but sadly, also those who did not survive. Sad at how many don't survive, compared to how many do. Almost seemed equal. Thank god for organizations like The Marine Mammal Center, and her dozens of paid staff, and the 1000s of volunteers, who do all they can to help heal & release all those that they can. Well Done TMMC, and those like you! I will surely continue to support you as much as I possibly can
