California Sea Lion Rescue in Santa Monica


Peter Wallerstein rescues an ill and pregnant California Sea lion poisoned by domoic acid contained in natural blooming algae on the beach in Santa Monica on Sunday, April 10, 2011.  Peter Wallerstein, director of Marine Animal Rescue, made seven rescues on Saturday, due to an earlier than usual bloom this year of the algae containing elevated levels of domoic acid, which stricken the brain of marine animals when ingested. The sea lion was rescued by Wallerstein and will be taken to a marine mammal care center for treatment of the often fatal poisoning.  Marine Animal Rescue website
