An effortthat began with locals rescuing sea lions from nearby beaches has grown into the largest marine mammal facility in the world. The center's groundbreaking research and education programs now teach 100,000 people a year how our daily choices affect the marine habitat and our own. This celebration of the history and mission of the Marine Mammal Center is illustrated with full-color photographs and sprinkled with real-life rescue stories, making this a book for animal lovers, environmentalists, and students.
