Promoting Ocean Conservation Awareness With The Marine Mammal Center

The Private Ocean team recently spent the day volunteering at The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito. The Center’s mission is to advance global ocean conservation through marine mammal rescue and rehabilitation, scientific research, and education.

Employees learned more about the Center’s patients and took on many tasks performed daily by current staff and volunteers, including fish kitchen duties, cleaning pens, refurbishing boards used during patient releases and administrative assistance. It was an informative, rewarding day that culminated in the team helping to paint The Center’s mural, which depicts their cycle of patient rescue, rehabilitation and release.

“We are all committed to leaving this place in better condition than how we found it – and we know that we share that vision with many of our clients, friends and family,” said Greg Friedman, CEO and Co-Founder of Private Ocean. “Private Ocean is honored to participate in the creation of this incredible mural and hope to raise awareness of the Center and its efforts.”

The Center rescues and rehabilitates sick and injured marine mammals at their state-of-the-art veterinary facilities. Through their work, they study the changing health of our oceans and what we can do to help protect endangered species and conserve our natural resources. The Center also functions as a teaching hospital by training veterinary professionals locally and internationally.
