Marine Mammal Care Center of Los Angeles at San Pedro

We serve all Los Angeles County beaches

Since 1992, MMCC Los Angeles has served Los Angeles County by providing in house medical care to the more than 8,000 injured or sick seals and sea lions stranded on the 70 miles of beaches from Malibu to Seal Beach.  Our goal is to rehabilitate and release these animals back to their ocean homes.  

Our mission is important to the health and safety of all of Los Angeles County beachgoers because there are no protected beaches where sick or injured seals or sea lions can rest and heal away from people.   MMCC Los Angeles is the only 24/7/365 safe haven for these animals in Los Angeles County.  Our non-profit rehabilitation center survives only by the support of kind patrons like you.  

We all share this ocean planet.
