Join us on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month for Marine Science Sunday - a FREE engaging ocean-inspired classroom series from our education experts.

This month we wrap up 2014 with a special Marine Science Sunday highlighting our Seal and Sea Lion Superstars of 2014.  In 2014, The Marine Mammal Center rescued its 4th most animals in our 40 year history, ranging from the California sea lion, to the elephant seal, to the threatened fur seal and we will focus on how our team of volunteers and veterinarians have been able to get those animals healthy and back out to their ocean home for the holidays.  Docent-led tours will take you around the hospital showcasing some of the patients we are caring for and how our veterinarians are getting them better.  Classroom presentations through interactive activities and multimedia will highlight our most memorable, notable, and to be honest, cutest patients of the year!
