Earth Day is April 22! What Are You Doing to Honor the Planet?

Some volunteers work in animal rescue at The Marine Mammal Center.

April 16, 2010
Earth Day 2010 is rapidly approaching. What better way to honor the planet this Thursday than to start volunteering at The Marine Mammal Center? After all, everything we do is connected to the ocean and the ocean's health is vital to the Earth's survival.

The Marine Mammal Center relies on its invaluable team of over 800 volunteers to keep up with the demands of the tasks at hand. We need help in so many different areas: animal care, science/research, rescue and education.

If you're the type that likes to roll up your sleeves and directly work with the marine mammals, we can help make that happen. No prior experience necessary! We'll make sure you get all the training you need to be safe and effective in this exciting volunteer capacity.

If you'd prefer something a little less hands-on, we have plenty of options for you as well. Some volunteers help out in the administrative offices, the welcome desk or even in the gift shop.

Happy Earth Day!
