The Marine Mammal Center
Our mission is to expand knowledge about marine mammals—their health and that of their ocean environment—and inspire their global conservation.
Our core work is the rescue and rehabilitation of sick and injured marine mammals, supported by state-of-the-art animal care and research facilities, a corps of dedicated volunteers, and an engaged community. We partner with leading scientists and other professionals to learn from the patients in our care—patients from healthy, endangered, and at-risk populations—and expand and advance scientific knowledge, thus enhancing understanding of the health of our oceans and highlighting implications for human health. We disseminate knowledge to members of the scientific community and general public. We ultimately inspire action and foster stewardship towards the care of our environment.
