Science and Discovery

     

Helping marine mammals in need along 600 miles of northern and central California coastline offers us unique and valuable opportunities to understand the health of the animals we treat and their connection to the health of the oceans in general.

We study marine mammal health, collaborate with researchers around the world, and publish findings in peer-reviewed scientific journals. By doing so, The Marine Mammal Center contributes to the understanding of the state of our greatest resource – the oceans.

 

Our scientific research program unites veterinary clinicians, pathologists, rehabilitation specialists, wildlife biologists, and research scientists to identify causes of marine mammal strandings and investigate health issues in our patients.

Our findings add to our knowledge of the health of marine mammals, lead to the development of new diagnostic tests and clinical techniques, determine the efficacy of rehabilitation, and reveal the effects of human and other stressors on the marine environment.
