Cheers to a Successful Past and a Hopeful Future
As we reflect on the past year and look forward to what the next 12 months may bring, we’re delighted to have supporters like you by our side for every step of the way. During 2013, you helped us provide support to 97 injured, sick and abandoned seals and sea turtles. You helped us learn from members of our thriving seal populations and give a second chance to sea turtles whose wild populations are in jeopardy. We were able to provide hands-on learning opportunities to nearly 80 students, community volunteers and interns, who in return provided thousands of hours of life-saving care to our healing patients. You helped us frolic to save more flippers at our most successful fundraiser since opening our doors in 2001, raising over $19,000 dollars to help more animals in need. One milestone really worth noting – our 1000th patient, “Hubba Bubba” was admitted for care and just a few short weeks later was ready for release. With your support, in total, we successfully returned 49 healthy animals to the wild for a fresh start on life.
The success of the MARC program is built on a foundation of support from our dedicated volunteers and a generous community. We wish you a healthy, happy and safe New Year. We can’t wait to see what 2014 has in store.
Consider a year-end donation to help us continue a successful program in 2014.
