Just north of San Francisco, across the Golden Gate Bridge, is the Marine Mammal Center.
This is their mission: “Our mission is to expand knowledge about marine mammals—their health and that of their ocean environment—and to 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.”
Recently a group of students, led by our teacher, Drew, had a great day visiting the Marine Mammal Center. Here are comments from one of our Student Ambassadors, Qi
“It was a gorgeous day, our EC adventure team head out to The Marine Mammal Center on Saturday with teacher Drew and ambassadors Koki and Qi. We had such a good time there. Apparently, the most special moment was walking close to the feeding area to see the sea lions, elephant seals and otters, how lovely they are still babies. Meanwhile, it was a great chance to learn how to rescue and protect them. We love the day trip so much and definitely go back and visit again. Please check out our activity every week make sure you’ll never miss any one! ”
