Abu and I were really sad to come across a dying sea lion on the beach. Many sea lions and dolphins have been dying the past few weeks from a toxic algae in the water. We wished there was more we could do to help — so sad to see them suffering so much.
We weren’t alone in feeling helpless — this woman waved down a lifeguard to ask for cones to be set around the sea lion so people (and dogs) wouldn’t disturb it while it suffered. Donations are needed to expand what care and services the marine specialists can provide these beautiful and suffering creatures.
