Ways to Help the Ocean at Home During Quarantine

Activities to Do at Home that Benefit The Marine Mammal Center, A Non-Profit that Rescues and Rehabilitates Marine Animals

Updated May 20, 2020

The new world we live in has caused many of us to slow down, leaving us with extra time to fill. If you’re feeling stuck at home and wondering how you can help those in need during quarantine, look no further. We’ve rounded up a list of ways you can help the ocean with activities you can do at home.

What’s whaley neat is that any purchase you make will support The Marine Mammal Center in advancing global ocean conservation. Support from people like you is critical for marine mammals in need, especially now during pupping season. Dozens of orphaned seal pups are rescued during this time of year, pups that are much too young to survive without help.

We’re all in need of a helping hand during times like these. And your purchase will give seal pups and other marine mammals a second chance at life while you get a fun activity to do at home!

Adopt-a-Seal® Six-Week Subscription $100
We’re all looking for creative ways to entertain ourselves at home and connect with our loved ones while staying safe. Personalized certificates featuring past patients, like elephant seal Weasley and California sea lion Bluegrass, will be sent weekly to you or the recipient of your choice when you purchase this limited-edition Adopt-a-Seal® six-week subscription. That’s six heartwarming stories to engage with over six weeks!

Search & Find Activity Set for Kids $39.95
You and your family can dive into marine mammal fun with this three-piece activity set. It includes a large puzzle of an Arctic scene, as well as two kid-friendly books full of marine animals.

Sea Animals Sticker Coloring Book for Kids $7.99
You and your kids can tap into your inner artists with this book filled with fun stickers and coloring pages of ocean scenes! You’ll also want to check out these color by number books (Sea Life and Geometric Ocean Life) as well as this intricate ocean-themed coloring book. It’s the perfect indoor activity to unwind with.

A Seal’s Life DVD $5
Tuck in for the evening with this fascinating documentary of one of the greatest migratory marine mammals, the northern elephant seal.
