the mermaid calls on all landfolk based in the southern california area to look out for fellow merfolk in need. there is currently a mass stranding of malnourished and ill seal pups. if you find one, please call the pacific marine mammal centre on this number: 949.494.3050 and do not try to touch or feed the seal. they will need special care. more instructions on what to do when you find a seal pup are here. the centre is also looking for donations, as they are running out of food and everything else that seal pups need!
