Review for National Marine Life Center, Inc., Buzzards Bay, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The National Marine Life Center in Buzzards Bay, MA is a small non-profit organization with many volunteers, some interns, and a small staff who work very hard to rehabilitate seals and sea turtles that are brought there, often in critical condition. I have been impressed with the dedication of all. The Discovery Center has interesting marine specimens, displays, and a large screen where visitors can see the animals in the hospital via live feed cameras. Volunteers working in the D.C. do updates and share their knowledge with visitors. In normal summers, there are fun programs for children. There is also a small gift shop. If you are in the area, it is worth a visit! Be sure to call first for hours and details during Covid 19.

Review for National Marine Life Center, Inc., Buzzards Bay, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We have been going to Massachusetts for many years to visit and volunteer at the National Marine LIfe Center, which we also donate to. NMLC folks do a great job of rehabilitating sick seals and endangered sea turtles that cold stun around Cape Cod in late fall. Though NMLC is not a large organization, the staff, volunteers and interns work tirelessly to rehabilitate the animals in their care. (The patients can be viewed on a monitor in the D.C.) The staff, volunteers and interns readily share their knowledge with visitors to their Discovery Center/Gift Shop. Besides caring for the animals, their veterinarian does research on parasites, and you can see some pretty interesting specimans in the Discovery Center. In Summer there are frequent programs for children to participate in, and it is a great learning experience. I, too, learn something new every time I visit.
