Book a Tour to Meet Our Patients

This patient is a California sea lion, our most commonly rescued species, with animals of all ages stranding throughout the year with a variety of ailments. 

Pups are born in June but stay with their moms for 10 months, so we typically see an influx of young animals in the spring. Other common reasons for stranding include domoic acid toxicosis, cancer, entanglement, malnutrition and leptospirosis
