Save the Sea Lions!

Save the Sea Lions Sea Lions

Sea animal rescue facilities have been overwhelmed this year along the West Coast. An algae bloom has created a natural toxin called domoic acid that's not only dangerous to humans but to sea lions, dolphins, sea birds, and other ocean animals.

If you see an injured sea lion or other marine animal, please don't try to interact or “help” it. Their behavior can be erratic due to illness, and your intervention, although well-meaning, can cause more harm. It's best to contact a professional such as a rescue facility immediately.

The best way to help is to donate or volunteer at Marine Mammal Care in San Pedro, The Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach or other rescue facilities in your area.
