The Marine Mammal Center rescues sick and injured marine mammals - mostly seals and sea lions - and rehabilitates them for release back into the wild. Take a fascinating tour of their facility at Fort Cronkite. See more at Discover Northern California: http://tinyurl.com/3c3h6f3
Admission is FREE! The Marine Mammal Center is open to the public daily between 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day. Individuals may explore on their own, join a Docent-Led Tour or take a new Audio Tour.
Stranded sea lions from up and down the coast are researched and nursed back to health. Visit the Marin Headlands too and make it part of a perfectly fun day on relatively few dollars. Read more at http://www.keepsmesmiling.com/
Completely renovated marine mammal hospital. Downstairs consists of an education room with pelts and specimens to touch and examine. Docents walk around the complex to answer questions on animal rescue, rehabilitation, and release. Viewing areas for kitchen and staff room (where records are kept). Separate animal viewing deck (must be quiet and cannot get close- animals can get used to humans). Close to a rodeo lagoon and ocean- very fun to visit both. Small center and a short visit but worth the stop if you have kids interestesd in animals.
