Unique Sea Lion Rescue Caught on Tape

sea-lion-rescuesea-lion-rescueLAGUNA BEACH — It’s been a busy time for sea lion rescuers.

In the past week they’ve rescued 15 California Sea Lions from Orange and Los Angeles counties.

Most of the sea lions are about 6 months old, called “pups” around that age, and this is not that unusual for this time of year.

The mothers usually give birth around the Channel Islands, and at this age, many of the sea lions either get lost from their mothers or for some reason leave them, and are not able to survive on their own.

When the rescuers find them, they’re usually dehydrated and severely under weight.

Without intervention from the rescuers, they’d likely starve to death.

The hope is that after about three months of rehab a the Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach, they will be back to normal and released back to sea .

One of the rescues was captured on tape using a GoPro video camera.

Chip Yost has more on the camera’s unique perspective.
