Going Further - Saving Seals


4,500 marine animals are living happily ever after, thanks to the efforts of Ford owner Bob Schoelkopf, founder of the Marine Mammal Stranding Center.

His nonprofit organization is dedicated to rescuing stranded marine animals along the east coast of America and giving them a second chance at life.

Since the MMSC’s inception in 1978, Bob and his wife, Sheila, along with a small group of volunteers, have successfully rescued and rehabilitated hundreds of seals, whales, dolphins and sea turtles.
