“There’s a lot of death out there.” California's sea lions are starving


National Geographic shares yet another story on California's mass sea lion starve off.

“The few pups that have enough strength to leave the rookeries and make it to the mainland get recorded as strandings,” says NOAA’s Mark Lowry, who monitors sea lion population numbers and also keeps track of what they’re eating. “There’s a lot of death out there.”

For SF Bay area residents, you can volunteer at the Marine Mammal Center if you'd like to help. I do, and it is a most amazing place. In SoCal, I am sure the Pacific Marine Mammal Center can use help too.
