The Marine Mammal Center

This year's USC Alumni Service Day entailed an educational and rewarding day helping out all the sick seals at The Marine Mammal Center in Marin County. The fish kitchen smells just about how you'd expect it to. I spent much of my time scrubbing algae out of seal pools. Their new facility is something to behold...a state of the art hospital for seals of all sorts. Their heroic work is carried out by a staff of 45 and around 1000 volunteers. Bravo folks. You do amazing work.

This little elephant seal could one day weigh 4,500 pounds. Let's hope he makes it.
