Last-Minute Gift Guide – Top 3 Gifts that Give Back to Marine Animals (No Shipping Required!)

Holiday Gifts that Benefit The Marine Mammal Center, a Non-Profit that Rescues and Rehabilitates Marine Animals

Our Last-Minute Gift Guide features gifts that give back to marine animals and don’t require shipping. By choosing to purchase these downloadable gifts, you are supporting medical care for our patients, which has enabled the rescue of more than 21,000 marine mammals since 1975.

1. For the animal-lover:
Downloadable Adopt-a-Seal®. $20
For the person on your list who already has it all, Adopt-a-Seal® lets you give a gift that gives back. When you symbolically adopt southern sea otter Yankee Doodle, or one of our other digitally downloadable patients, your purchase will provide the food and medical care our sick and injured patients need in order to return home for the holidays. You will be able to download the adoption certificate that features Yankee Doodle’s photo and his story. From sea otters to seals to sea lions, choose from many of our downloadable Adopt-a-Seal® stories here.

2. For the kids:
A fun-filled week at Camp Sea Quest. Starts at $400
The Marine Mammal Center's summer day camp dates for 2019 have just been released—be the first to pick your dates before they sell out! Campers will spend a week at the world’s largest marine mammal hospital learning all about how we rescue, rehabilitate and release patients every day. Campers will enjoy a combination of classroom-based activities, behind-the-scenes experiences and nature walks around the beautiful Marin Headlands. After Camp Sea Quest, they will be empowered to positively impact their communities.

3. For the one who has everything:
A gift and eCard in their honor. Starts at $5
The perfect gift that gives back for someone who doesn’t need more stuff, a gift to The Marine Mammal Center in honor of your loved one has a big impact on ocean conservation. Send a personalized eCard with your donation and let them know they gave a second chance to marine mammals. Your eCard can be sent immediately or on a specific date.

We're in the middle of the second largest leptospirosis outbreak on record, a potentially fatal bacterial infection that has been diagnosed in more than 220 California sea lions rescued by The Marine Mammal Center so far this year. A purchase of any of our Last-Minute Gifts that Give Back will help to support our mission of ocean conservation through marine mammal rescue and rehabilitation, scientific research, and education.
