Marine Mammal Center
A baby sea lion is making a recovery in the Bay Area thanks to an unusual Coast Guard rescue.
An sea lion rescued last week when Sausalito’s Marine Mammal Center found it entangled in plastic netting, was released back into the ocean in Santa Cruz Tuesday.
A renowned male sea lion that was shot and left for dead in 2009 is believed to have sired a pup at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, amusement park officials said Thursday.
A young seal pup is expected to make a full recovery after some heroics on the part of wildlife workers who rescued her from the back of an RV speeding up the California coast.
Sasualito’s Marine Mammal Center says Hoppie, who was found emaciated in a Modesto orchard at the end of march, was now plump and healthy enough to be released at Chimney Rock on the Point Reyes National Seashore.
A marine mammal rescue group said Monday it’s seeing a record number of stranded sea lions and seals along the Northern and central California coast — some of whom appear to have been sickened by toxins and others weaned by their mothers earlier than usual.
Spring is one of the best times of the year to visit the North Bay and some attractions offer free group or self-guided tours.
On Tuesday we told you the story of Hoppie the sea lion pup’s rescue and rehabilitation by the Sausalito Marine Mammal Center, but the truth is the facility is on the brink of having more wayward mammals in need than ever before.
10 years after an adult sea lion was rescued in Los Banos, a sea lion pup is now being rehabilitated by the Sausalito Marine Mammal Center after being rescued from the same area.
Dr. Jennifer Scarlett with the SF SPCA says Harbor seals are helping with human health research because they live on or near the shore and eat similar seafood to humans.
