Pristine Planet Sponsors the Run for the Seals!

Pristine Planet is proud to sponsor the 2012 Marine Mammal Center's Run for the Seals! A bit about the Marine Mammal Center "The Marine Mammal Center began in 1975 with the goal of rescuing and providing medical care to sick, injured and orphaned marine mammals in Marin County. What started out as three animal lovers equipped with little more than kiddie pools and hoses has grown into a world-renowned and state-of-the-art hospital, research center and education facility."
