5 Amazing Pictures of Seals Helped by Brigantine’s Marine Mammal Stranding Center


South Jersey has the distinct privilege of being home to the Marine Mammal Stranding Center, although sometimes I think that facility is taken for granted or is a little under appreciated by locals. So here’s some background information and some incredible pictures of the good work they do at MMSC!

Originally based in Gardner’s Basin in the inlet section of Atlantic City, the Center is now located on Brigantine Boulevard in Brigantine, bordering coastal New Jersey’s largest wildlife refuge, the Edwin B. Forsythe Wildlife Refuge.

Since the Center’s founding in 1975, staff and volunteers have responded to over 4000 calls for whales, dolphins, seals and seaturtles that washed ashore on New Jersey beaches. These animals range from a five pound Kemps Ridley Sea Turtle to a 25-ton Humpback Whale (both of which are endangered species).

The Marine Mammal Stranding Center is the only marine mammal stranding facility in New Jersey,  dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of these stranded or otherwise stressed marine mammals and sea turtles.

The Center is available for tours and offers hands-on exhibits and educational programs.  Since there is no permanent funding at this time, your donations and membership dollars are vital. Your support will help the facility to expand and to care for the increasing number of animals. Without your assistance, these creatures have little hope of survival or rehabilitation.
