|Life-size Elephant Seal Statue|
The entrance to the Marine Mammal Center features life-size statues of a sea lion, elephant seal and sea otter who greet visitors, allowing one to gain an appreciation of how big these animals are and to see them up close--an opportunity one would never have with a live animal.

|The Marin Headlands is located north of San Francisco, just on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. On the road to the Marine Mammal Center one has a dramatic view of the city and of the bridge.|
