Steller sea lion Smores was found alone on a beach at just a few months old. At the Center, Smores was housed with many different patients. Spending time with companions of different species and ages helps Steller sea lion pups avoid habituating to humans while learning important behavior skills. 

Smores formed a quick bond with a northern fur seal that was about 100 pounds smaller than her. After nine months of rehabilitation, Smores was released near the Farallon Islands, a marine sanctuary that is home to many other Steller sea lions.
