Check out some of our patients enjoying the Laguna Beach sunshine.
We have had a busy 2019 so far, rescuing over 172 animals. The majority of our patients (pups under a year old) strand on Orange County beaches in the late winter, spring and early summer. We are grateful for all the support we receive from the public: please keep calling and letting us know about marine mammals in need.
Patients in pool "Pool A" are typically animals who are nearing the end of their rehabilitation. These animals are again competing for food, their medical issues have been resolved, and many of them will soon be candidates for release back into the ocean.
Patients in “Pool D” are in intermediate care. These animals are now foraging for fish on their own and have entered the general patient population.
Patients in the “Side Pools” have gained the strength to transition out of the intensive care unit and now begin to learn how to fish school and compete for fish with others.
