Seal Day adds to the celebration with the 30th anniversary of the San Pedro Center

This year’s Seal Day took on a special air of celebration this weekend, with the Marine Mammal Care Center in San Pedro, which hosts the festival every year, also celebrating its 30th anniversary.

“We are 30 and thriving,” Amber Becerra, president of the center, which was formed by the closure of Marineland, said in an interview prior to the event.

“It’s amazing to look back over the past 30 years and see how far MMCC has come,” he said, “and look to the future to see what we can achieve in the next 30 years.”

On Seal Day, Saturday, June 18, there are food trucks, live music, performances, local artisans and vendors, activities for all ages, and award pictures. But, as always, the biggest attraction was the recovering marine mammals.

The Center for Seals and Sea Lions is a non-profit hospital for seals and sea lions stranded on more than 70 miles of beaches from Malibu to Seal Beach due to illness, injury, and malnutrition. MMCC focuses on ocean conservation and environmental education for local residents and visitors to the area, offering free tours led by educational volunteers. The center hosts thousands of school children for field trips on-site and virtually every year.

It is located in San Pedro at Angels Gate Park, 3601 S. Located inside Gaffy St.

The goal is to keep the animals only for as long as necessary so that they can be released back into the ocean when they recover.
