Game show veteran Bob Barker came to the Pacific Mammal Center on Wednesday to celebrate the official reopening of its visitor's center and release a seal — aptly named Barker — back into the wild.
"I must confess that the most exciting thing is Barker," he told the crowd, referring to his namesake seal. "I was astounded at the family resemblance. I have relatives that look a great deal like her."
The price couldn't have been more right when Barker donated $250,000 to the Pacific Mammal Center earlier this year, allowing the center to reopen its doors after the December floods ravaged it.
The center is the only rescue center in Orange County for marine mammals.
The former "The Price is Right" host was excited about his contribution to the center, which helped recover vital areas, such as medical equipment, the filtration system, the electrical panel and the building itself.
