The Marine Mammal Center

Sea Lion Soirée 2016


Sea Lion SoirÉe 2016

Thanks for joining The Marine Mammal Center in celebrating the Science Behind the Center. Our Sea Lion Soirée event on September 18 was a great success as supporters from all over the world joined us at the Center, creating an intergenerational afternoon with guests of all ages.

With help from people like you, we raised more than $421,000 to support the Science Behind the Center. Your ongoing support will strengthen our mission to advance global ocean conservation through marine mammal rescue and rehabilitation, scientific research, and education.

View a video about Candy Corn, our sea lion patient that was released at Rodeo Beach during the Sea Lion Soirée.

How'd you do on our five-question science quiz? Take a look at the answer key to find out!
