26th Annual SEAL DAY
June 24, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Celebrating its 26th year, SEAL DAY at Marine Mammal Care Center Los Angeles continues to be an annual event that invites our supporters and new visitors to our “open house.”
This event allows visitors that day to further discover that the work we do not only benefits our marine mammal patients, but also educates the public and our visitors about why our patients are there in the first place.
To help inform our visitors at this family friendly event, the day consists of guest lecturers, films, narrated rehabilitation demonstrations, and theme related children’s activities. There is also plenty of literature and other goodies handed out to take home.
Volunteers are on hand to answer questions in our patient viewing area where visitors can see how the patients are rehabilitating.
To further heighten the visitor experience, MMCC LA collaborates with over 30 other like-minded organizations that are set up in booths to inform them on environmental and ocean health topics. This also helps promote the importance of community awareness and assists in making Seal Day a special event for Los Angeles County and its coastal communities.
To add to this “festival atmosphere,” food trucks are onsite to make sure that there are refreshments, as well as music and entertainment to keep the event lively with opportunity drawings and activities.
For 2018, MMCC LA will be adding a new element to Seal Day – the “Anime Pavilion.” We hope this attraction will add to the fun atmosphere and bring new visitors and potential donors to an even more festive experience.
