Thanks for joining The Marine Mammal Center in celebrating 40 years of veterinary, scientific and educational achievements. Our Sea Lion Soirée event on October 4 was a great success as families from throughout the Bay Area joined as at the Center, creating an intergenerational afternoon with guests of all ages.
With help from people like you, we raised more than $545,000 to support our highly acclaimed scientific research initiatives, renowned educational programs and our ever-growing number of patients. Your ongoing support will launch us into the next 40 years as we accelerate our efforts to conserve endangered marine mammal species, continue groundbreaking research and share our work across the world.
