This slide deck shares important information about nonprofit Texas Sealife Center in Corpus Christi, Texas. I share it here to help good the word out. "Texas Sealife Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the rescue rehabilitation and release of coastal and aquatic wildlife." All-volunteer, the Center has a core group of 20 volunteers and welcomes more than 3,000 visitors annually. Its trained veterinarians and volunteers rescue and rehabilitate approximately 400 injured and stranded animals annually.
