Representing Marine Mammals

Rep. Woolsey and her delegation join Center staff for a photo at the entrance of the future facility.

On Thursday, August 7, The Marine Mammal Center was honored to host a delegation from Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey’s office. Congresswoman Woolsey and her staff, who represent California’s 6th District, which incorporates Marin and Sonoma counties, were treated to a tour of our animal care facility. As the Congressional representative for this area, it was a wonderful opportunity to be able to show her our new facility construction as well as the importance of our organization in the community. The Center is very grateful for the continuing support of Representative Woolsey and her office! See photos from the tour here.
