MARINE MAMMAL CENTER
November 9, 2012

The Marine Mammal Center has the most committed volunteer corps imaginable, and the world's leading marine mammal scientists working on the care of the animals they rescue as well as contributing to peer-reviewed scientific literature about the causes of disease in the oceans. Did you know that the Marine Mammal Center discovered that the California Sea Lion is only one of two or three wild species that suffer from cancer? They've explored the causes of neurological diseases in stranded marine mammals and are working to save the most endangered pinniped in US waters -- the Hawaiian Monk Seal. The Center works hard to educate children, to illuminate the problems of plastics in the oceans, and to contribute to scientific knowledge. Honestly, it's hard to find a more well-rounded organization focused on animal welfare, both short- and long-term, and on public education on environmental issues.
