Volunteers: The Heart and Soul of The Marine Mammal Center


Volunteers help us rescue and rehabilitate sick and injured marine mammals, educate the public about the conservation of marine mammals and their ocean environment and so much more!

Volunteers Needed!

The Marine Mammal Center is currently looking for volunteers immediately to help in the fish kitchen at our main hospital in Sausalito, CA. Fish Kitchen Volunteers offer support to our animal care crews during our busy season by helping with the daily tasks including dish washing, kitchen cleaning and fish preparation. Shifts are 3-4 hours and are open to all – no previous training required! For more information click here.
