Virtual Social Hour: Giving Injured Marine Mammals a Second Chance

Southern California is a destination not only for vacationers but for a diversity and abundance of marine life.  Each year tens of thousands of marine mammals, including seals and sea lions, breed off of the Southern California coast.  Some of these animals become sick or injured and strand on Southern California’s iconic beaches.  As part of our Virtual Social Hour on Sunday, June 27, Dave Bader, Chief Operations and Education Officer at the Marine Mammal Care Center in San Pedro, will discuss how experts work to rehabilitate these marine mammals and provide them with a second chance at life in the wild.  Dave will give a close look at hospital operations and the patients at the Marine Mammal Care Center. 

Dave has a bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology from the University of California at Santa Cruz and a master’s degree in Biology with an emphasis in educational media design from the University of California at Irvine.
