Creating a Legacy for the Ocean


Raised in rural Louisiana, Clint Jones grew up a hunter. As he grew older, his love for animals caused him to give up hunting and inspired his interest in caring for wildlife. During his first visit to the Aquarium 25 years ago, Clint stood for nearly 45 minutes at the Sea Otter exhibit admiring their "joy of life" and learning about our work to protect them in the wild. After concluding his career as a dermatologist, Clint retired to the Monterey Peninsula to pursue his passion for wildlife rehabilitation and become a volunteer guide at the Aquarium.

Since 2002, Clint has logged over 7,500 hours as a volunteer. He currently leads visitors on behind-the-scenes tours.

Clint wanted to share our work in sea otter recovery with the public and stimulate support. With the help of Sea Studios, he produced the feature-length film, Otter 501. It tells the story of an orphaned pup and the work of our sea otter program team to return her to the wild.
The film led to the production of a PBS Nature program, Saving Otter 501. Viewed by millions of people since it first aired in 2013, Saving Otter 501 has had a tremendous impact, raising awareness and funds to support our sea otter program.
Clint is a wonderful example of the positive impact one person can have. We''re deeply grateful for his dedication as a volunteer and as a donor, and for including the Aquarium in his estate plan.

Learn how you can support the Aquarium with a legacy gift, or to let us know you have included the Aquarium in your will or trust, please contact Mary Mullen at mmullen@mbayaq.org or (831) 648-4913. Thank you!
