A Track Record of Innovation, Groundbreaking Advances, and Scientific Inquiry
Patients at The Marine Mammal Center receive the best veterinary care from our trained volunteers and staff. The goal seems simple - to treat the patients and release them back to the wild - but it is not, given the host of illnesses, human-caused injuries, and deteriorating environmental factors these animals face. We learn an incredible amount from these patients, and many of them have captured our hearts and sparked scientific inquiry. The treatment of our patients has led to pioneering work, medical breakthroughs, and significant contributions to veterinary knowledge. Here are just a few of the stories of the patients that we have treated in recent years at the Center.
