Aimee Bolender, a local Crescent City photographer, makes a point of attending the release of Northcoast Marine Mammal Center’s patients. She has captured endearing photos of seals and sea lions as local volunteers cheer them on to a healthy and happy future in the ocean.
She sells her photos in our gift shop, giving a percentage of her sales to the operation and care of our seriously injured animals.

In addition to the Northcoast Marine Mammal Center’s gift store, Aimee’s photos are on the web at:
