Volunteering with the Marine Mammal Center is the most rewarding experience I've ever had. We help animals of all shapes, sizes and conditions, mainly pinnipeds, but also cetaceans, sea otters and the occasional turtle. We see and treat shark bites, gunshot wounds, malnutrition, environmental reactions, infections, pneumonia, even cancer. While it's wonderful having the opportunity to rehabilitate the animals, it's even better getting to release them back into the wild, and watching their faces light up when they realize they're going home.
