This year we are going to work with an animal rescue organization. We have decided to partner with an organization in south county called Pacific Marine Mammal Center located in the canyon in Laguna Beach. This is a wonderful, local organization whose mission is "dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of marine mammals stranded along the Orange County coastline and to increase public awareness of the marine environment through education and research."
Since this year we are studying the ocean and will take a field trip to Little Corona Tide Pools, we thought it a wonderful idea to put our efforts to helping local marine mammals! As we get more information, we will pass it along to you as to how we hope to help the Pacific Marine Mammal Center.
Here's a link to their website so you can see what they do. For now, we are going to start collecting items from their "wish list." Bring anything you gather to Mrs. Hood in Room 5.
Our field trip to the Marine Mammal Center in November was so much fun!
