Pacific Marine Mammal Center is one of 41 organizations statewide — including rehabilitation groups, universities and aquariums — that comprise the Oiled Wildlife Care Network. The network was established in 1994 by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Office of Spill Prevention and Response after spills by the Exxon Valdez in Alaska (about 11 million gallons spilled) and the American Trader in Huntington Beach (more than 400,000 gallons). It is administered by the UC Davis Wildlife Health Center in the School of Veterinary Medicine.
