From Missiles to Marine Mammals...Dr. Jeffrey Boehm
At the retired cold war Nike missile base, on the headlands of Marin County, just north of San Francisco, lies the Marine Mammal Center. Whether it is waging a war on plastic, tending to a beached humpback whale that was trying to crash a baseball game at Candlestick Park, rescuing and treating over 16,000 elephant seals, sea lions, sea otters and other marine mammals that get stranded along the California coast or offering exceptional edu-tainment for visitors, this Sausalito facility is truly one of a kind.
My guest today is the Executive Director of the Marine Mammal Center, veterinarian Jeffrey Boehm. I had the pleasure of visiting the center in June of this year and saw firsthand the fabulous work they are doing and why it is so vitally important for each of us to protect our ocean’s health.
