Marine Mammal Care essay by J. Guzman

Marine Mammal Care Center is a Good Cause

 

            Have you been to the Marine Mammal Care Center?  Isn’t that place here for a good cause?  I think that place is here for a good cause.  It helps all those poor seals and sea lions.  And many get to be free.  But some others can’t because they are blind or another defect.  I heard about one seal with a defect.  I think Marine Mammal Care Center is a good cause because without it, many seals would have died, it can help seals/sea lions with defects, and they make seals/sea lions happy again.

 

            The first reason why I think that Marine Mammal Care Center is a good cause is because without it, many seals/sea lions would have perished.  Even if they have a few, they help a lot more.  For instance, they free 100+ seals/sea lions a year.  That may be small, but it helps a lot.  Without it, those 100+ seals/sea lions could be the death toll of them per year.  That’s really sad.

 

            Also, it helps them avoid extinction.  By now, without MMCC, the seals/sea lions would be endangered or extinct.  But since we have MMCC, that hasn’t happened.

 

            The second reason why I think MMCC is a good cause is because they help seals/sea lions with defects.  Imagine you were blind.  Then imagine some people throw you into the wilderness to survive.  You wouldn’t survive long, would you?  The same is for seals/sea lions.  Or if you are deaf and the same thing happened, you couldn’t hear the bears or cougars.  So that’s when MMCC comes in.  They take in those seals/sea lions and when they recover, they send them into the aquarium.  Why?  So they won’t have to worry about predators.  That’s why.

            My third and final reason why I think MMCC is a good cause because it makes seals/sea lions happy. 

 

Imagine you have a wound.  Then you go to the doctors.  After that, you would be happy because it wouldn’t hurt and you could get back to doing what you like.  The seals/sea lions feel the same way.  They could get left behind.  But after they’re healed, they could go back.  Yay!.

            In conclusion, I think MMCC is a good cause because without it, many seals/sea lions would have died, it can help seals/sea lions with defects, and they make seals/sea lions happy again.  Maybe you could visit on weekends.  You may also donate to help them.  You won’t regret it.

Marine Mammal Care Essay by C. Silva

            Imagine what it would be like to become a harbor seal.  Living your life calmly, not worrying about a thing.  All you have to do is eat delicious fish.  You were swimming all happily, without a care in the world until your throat started hurting.  A ripped piece of a fishing net got caught around your neck.  How would you eat?  Then you are found by the beloved Marine Mammal Care Center.  They bring you to their lab and treat you.  I believe the Marine Mammal Care Center is an amazing organization of volunteers.  They treat sea lions and seals, they inform people about life of sea lions and how to protect them.  As well as giving an opportunity to college students.

 

            My first reason the Marine Mammal Care Center is an amazing organization is that they treat sea lions and seals with extraordinary care.  When a young pup is malnourished and without a mother, the Marine Mammal Care Center creates a shake that is very similar to the mother’s milk.  The volunteers heal cuts a sea lion might have from a predator.  They rehabilitate these mammals until they are able to be released back into the ocean.  The volunteers give the seals and sea lions medicine if they are sick.  The mammals get dens with a variation of pool sizes depending on the health and progress.  They may get dead fish or fish they have to catch.  The Marine Mammal Care Center does as much as they can without the seals and sea lions getting attatched.

 

            My second reason the Marine Mammal Care Center is an amazing organization is that the volunteers inform people about the life of sea lions and how to protect them.  Student Council and G.A.T.E. members went on a field trip to the Marine Mammal Care Center.  The workers, or volunteers, were talking about ways to prevent these types of injuries on all sea life.  They showed examples of different seals and sea lions.  You could see similarities and differences.  The workers showed us various items we could donate to help organize and help the seals and sea lions.  They make sure no one harms these mammals by littering or capturing them by accident.

 

            My final reason the Marine Mammal Care Center is an amazing organization is that it gives college students an opportunity by volunteering.  If the students are studying aquatic life and care, they can get a hands on experience.  They can learn important things to know about seals and sea lions.  It also benefits the Marine Mammal Care Center.  The more volunteers the merrier.

 

            I believe the Marine Mammal Care Center is an amazing organization.  They treat seals and sea lions with care, they inform people about the life of sea lions and how to protect them.  As well as giving an opportunity to college students.  Image if you were a seal and got injured.  What would you do without the volunteers?
