BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • This is a fairly small, non-profit center where injured, rescued pinipeds (fin-footed mammals) are treated and rehabilitated. Animals include northern elephant seals, harbor seals, and California sea lions.
  • This is also the only temporary holding facility for small whales and dolphins between Santa Barbara and San Diego.
  • You can see the animals and learn about the important work this facility is doing—public awareness is, after all, part of its mission. Your donation could go a long way to helping an injured or stranded marine animal.
