Nearly 300 starving or stranded sea lions rescued off O.C. this year, care center honored.

This was the third year of mass sea lion strandings along the California coastline that scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration say is due to a warming ocean and lack of food for these marine mammals birthed by the thousands each year on the Channel Island rookeries. The mass strandings were declared an “unusual mortality event” by federal officials.
