For 20 years, the Marine Mammal Care Center¬†( at Fort MacArthur has been Los Angeles County’s hospital for sick, injured, stranded and orphaned animals. The non-profit center at 3601 South Gaffey St. #8 in San Pedro, rehabilitates and returns most of the mammals to their natural environment. If one cannot return to the wild, the center tries to find a caring zoo or aquarium to accommodate it for life.¬† Read full story…>

You can come and see the mammals at the center, from 10am to 4pm, daily (including holidays). Admission is free but donations are greatly appreciated. You can look through fences and see the wonderful loving care being given these warm-blooded mammals, who breathe air, give live birth, nurse their young and have fur and hair. You sometimes can tell from their grateful faces, how they appreciate the care they are receiving. Onlookers also sense the mutual love on the faces and actions of the animal caregivers. Definitely plan a visit to this very special center. You will be glad you did!
