Marine Science Sunday: Seal and Sea Lion Superstars of 2017 The Marine Mammal Center
Marine Science Sunday:
Seal and Sea Lion Superstars
The Marine Mammal Center
Sunday, December 10 and 24 from 10am-4pm
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 2017 with a special Marine Science Sunday highlighting our Seal and Sea Lion Superstars of 2017. In 2017, The Marine Mammal Center rescued many California sea lions, elephant seals, harbor seals, and endangered fur seals and Hawaiian monk seals. In fact, in the Spring, we had over 200 patients onsite at once! 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!
FREE Classroom Programs: Seal and Sea Lion Superstars of 2016- 12 PM and 2 PM (1 hour sessions)
Celebrating 42 years of marine mammal rescue and rehabilation in 2017, there is no shortage of amazing animals and cases from the patients rescued this year! We will highlight a days-old harbor seal we taught to eat fish, endangered fur seals, saving the most endangered seal in the US out in Hawaii, and how we were able to rescue hundreds of starving California sea lions that were seen on beaches in California early this year. A great complement to the docent-led tour!
