We have 10 animals we are currently caring for.  Not all patients may be visible from the visitor area as some of them may be in critical condition, recovering in our intensive care areas. The majority of our patients (pups under a year old) stranding on Orange County beaches in the spring time are suffering from dehydration and malnutrition.  Not all species are guaranteed to be visible or in-house all times of the year.

We are grateful for all the support we receive from the public: please keep calling and letting us know about marine mammals in need. Please also consider a donation towards their care.

As our patients receive necessary medical attention and care, they begin to recover and thrive. Nothing feels better than seeing our patients "before and after," knowing we have made a difference.
