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/

The Marine Mammal Center has recently received national media coverage about its work in rescuing and treating seals and sea lions, and studying the conditions that affect marine mammal health. You can watch the Center on NOVA’s Ocean Animal Emergency, the Today Show on NBC, Nightline on ABC, and on a recent Scientific American podcast. The public response to these news programs has been wonderful and we're very thankful to NOVA and so many other news outlets that help us raise our awareness with their audiences and hopefully to inspire action that benefits both marine mammals and the ocean.
