We were thrilled to take KQED radio reporter Amy Standen and intern Jennifer Skene on a tour of The Marine Mammal Center last week. They were introduced to a few of our sea lion patients, as well as staff and volunteers, and they learned that every animal we treat helps us learn more about marine mammal health and the ocean. Amy reports for the multimedia science series Quest which is about the people behind San Francisco Bay Area science and environmental issues and how their work is changing the way we live. You can listen to Amy's report on September 29 on KQED-FM in San Francisco at 6:33am and 8:33am. If you're sleeping in that morning or do not live in the Bay Area, not to fear. You can listen to the report and see KQED's accompanying slideshow right here!

The Marine Mammal Center is a nonprofit veterinary hospital, research, and educational center dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of ill and injured marine mammals and the study of their health. Since 1975, the Center has rescued and treated more than 16,500 marine mammals and has accumulated a body of knowledge about marine mammal and ocean health. Through public education about marine mammals, the Center hopes to foster ocean stewardship and conservation. For more information, visit http://www.marinemammalcenter.org/
