Today’s video is the heartwarming story of a seal being rescued by volunteers at The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, CA. Using the training that they received at the center, five volunteers go through the special process required for rescuing a marine mammal safely and quickly. Once the rescue is successfully completed, one of the volunteers looks into the camera and explains: “They teach us.” You can learn, too, by watching the video!
