Now, before you leave, do you want to make a seal's day?

Help Protect Whales
Our cetacean experts observed whales in the San Francisco Bay through November last year. Look for spouts, slow to 10 knots or less and give whales space. If you see a whale, report it through our citizen science portal.
Carving a Pumpkin?
Check out our stencils and carving suggestions to show your love for seals, sea lions, and whales this Halloween. Share your jack-o'-lantern with us on social media with #CenterPumpkins.
Hawaiian Monk Seal Pups Rescued
These pups had less than one percent chance of survival. They are now receiving treatment at our hospital on Hawai‘i Island.
Creatures of the Deep
Join us on October 27 for Marine Science Sunday! Celebrate Halloween with a creepy collection of stories about the animals that live in the deepest parts of the ocean, like elephant seals, sperm whales, goblin sharks and vampire squid.
