Sea Lions: Unusual Mortality Event

Sea lions need your help!

An overwhelming number of malnourished sea lion pups are showing up on the California coastline.  The stranding centers and marine mammal rescue response teams are stretched to the limit with available resources.  They need public help as they diligently work to rescue and rehabilitate these starving animals with a goal of releasing them when they are healthy.  Please join Dolphin Research Center and the other members of the Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks and Aquariums in offering support and donations.  

You can donate directly to the National Marine Mammal Foundation ( or to any of these stranding centers:  Marine Mammal Care Center, San Pedro.
