Review for MARINE MAMMAL CENTER, Sausalito, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I continue to be amazed by The Marine Mammal Center in my early months as a volunteer. In mid-July, I had an opportunity to release nine sea lions back into the Pacific and share in the absolute pride while watching them rush out to the sea. These were nine of the 800+ pinnipeds that are rescued, rehabilitated and released by TMMC every year. Then in mid-Sept, I truly lived a lifelong childhood dream of joining Jacques Cousteau on the Calypso by spending the morning with his eldest son and ocean explorer, Jean-Michel. Standing alongside Jean-Michel that Thur morning and seeing the pride he shared w the entire TMMC team as more three sea lions were released, was my once in a lifetime moment to actually live my wildest childhood dream … The groundswell of support I’m getting from my family and friends is a testament to how our efforts touch so many people who only dream of the volunteer work and organization we’re privileged to support …
