About two miles from the beach in Bodega Bay, California, there's a small island where sea lions stop to rest. Despite the distance, I can hear the animals barking faintly.
Looking through a pair of binoculars – I pick out wiggling, cigar-shaped smudges along the lower parts of Bodega Rock.
Dozens and dozens of sea lions – all different shades of brown, tan and beige.
What could all that barking mean?
Yes, I want to save a life!
