SHAME ON YOU CATALINA EXPRESS!
On Sunday, April 20, 2008, the Marine Mammal Rescue Team from the California Wildlife Center in Malibu received several desperate calls from citizens on Catalina Island. There was an injured and very sick sea lion pup that needed prompt assistance. He was grossly underweight and had a fish hook embedded in his nose. They had been trying to get someone to come for weeks. We went to Catalina on the Catalina Express and rescued the baby sea lion.
I was appalled to find that the Catalina Express would charge a non-profit rescue organization for their fare over to Avalon. We had been assured that there would be no fare, only to be told differently when we got there.
Debbie Avellana, of Debbie's Island Deli heard about it and picked up the tab. She also provided a bag of food and drinks for our return trip. Thank you Debbie for your unselfish generosity. The management of the Catalina Express could certainly learn a thing or two from you.
