Marine Mammal Care Center at Fort MacArthur
This complex is a fine alternative to ocean-themed parks like San Diego's Sea World. Here, you can view sick or injured seals and sea lions rehabilitating in preparation for their return to the ocean. The center, run by two full-time staff members and a number of volunteers, caters primarily to California Sea Lions, Northern Elephant Seals, Northern Fur Seals and Harbor Seals. The center also has a gift shop and exhibits with materials intended to educate the public about marine mammals. Admission is free.

A rehabilitation and release facility run by a small paid staff and a large number of volunteers. Staff took time to answer questions, enclosures were clean and the animals seemed well cared for. A small gift shop was well-stocked with a variety of sea lion/seal themed items. Animals are normally fed three times per day and there often is a staffperson available to expalin the feeding process to interested visitors. Visits are free.
beautiful setting but the buildings where the
seals are seem very dirty. was not impressed and felt kind of sorry for the
animals. there must be a better place for
their rehabilitation. a care center to me
should be neat, clean. even the gift shop is
a mess. is it cost effective to keep this
facility open and are there not better run
care centers available. it needs direction
and a good old fashioned cleaning and tossing
out of junk to make a good impression on
visitors. it has been several years since
i visited the facility and was shocked at
how it has deteriorated.
