Aside from fulfilling customers’ orders, I also devote a large amount of time in making donation plushes for the Marine Mammal Rescue Centre (MMRC) in the form of my Original Chubby Blushing Whales*, Chubby Harbour Seals, and CloudJellies! These can be found in limited amounts at the Vancouver Aquarium Gift Shop, both online, and in store.
Since starting this partnership with the Vancouver Aquarium in 2015, we’ve raised over $10,000 for the rescue! 100% of all donations are donated to the MMRC and will continue to be!

Below is one of the many successful stories of harbour seals being released back into the wild and an excerpt from the MMR website:
Over the decades we have rescued, rehabilitated and successfully released thousands of animals, including harbour seals, California sea lions, Steller sea lions, Northern fur seals, elephant seals, sea turtles, killer whales and harbour porpoise.
