Marine Mammal Center joins #GivingTuesday with matching donation program

Sausalito’s Marine Mammal Center is joining in the #GivingTuesday festivities this year, with a dollar-to-dollar matching donation program that will support their animal rescue and rehabilitation services.

“We’re so grateful to see the spirit of giving thanks extend into this week through #GivingTuesday,” says Dr. Jeff Boehm, Executive Director of The Marine Mammal Center. “Every dollar raised goes directly towards the Center’s efforts rescuing and rehabilitating marine mammals, and inspiring their conservation in the next generation.”

The 41-year-old Center has rescued over 20,000 marine mammal during its tenure, while simultaneously running educational programs for visitors. In recent years, many of the animals rescued have been sick and starving sea lions found stranded on California’s shores.

Those interested in donating can do so via the organization’s website. The matching funds will be donated by the C.A.A. Charitable Trust, up to $10,000.

All donations on #GivingTuesday will help give marine animals a second chance at life, and send them back to their ocean home for the holidays.CaliforniaGiving TuesdayMarine Mammal Centersausalitosea lions
