Seals in crisis along California's Central Coast

It’s been a busy March at the Marine Mammal Center’s Morro Bay triage facility. During the month, the facility has cared for 38 malnourished seals — mostly sea lions that were on their way to the group’s main veterinary hospital in Sausalito from Southern California. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has declared “an unusual morbidity event is occurring for California sea lions in Southern California.”
