What’s Happening to California Sea Lions?

Stranded, starving and sickly sea lion pups are showing up by the hundreds on California beaches, miles from their mothers who would normally be nursing their young. The situation is reaching crisis proportions, and keeping a valiant team of experts busy as the California Stranding Network answers the call to rehabilitate rescued pups. We talk with Justin Viezbicke, NOAA Fisheries California Stranding Network coordinator, who gives some insight into what is happening to California sea lions, what the stranding network is doing, and how you can help.

Everyday Action: Report sightings of stranded animals to 1-866-767-6114. Support and donate to the members of the California Stranding Network.
