Welcome to our blog!

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/

Here Comes The Sun

It was with great excitement that the staff and volunteers watched the solar panels go up on the new facility's animal pens last week. These solar panels will not only provide a portion of the Center's energy needs when it opens next year, but they will also do double duty as shade structures for the marine mammal patients in our care. The dual-use application of the panels represents the kind of creative architecture and green design that can be found throughout the rebuild project.
