Steller Sea Lions: Grizzlies of the Sea

SALISH SEA WILD: EPISODE ONE

 

Stellers are the world’s largest species of sea lion. Early observers called them sea lions because the males grow large, furry manes, but when we compare these top predators to land animals, we think of them as the grizzlies of the sea. In our debut episode of Salish Sea Wild, the team heads up to Hornby Island on a frigid winter week to dive with dozens of these magnificent creatures.

 
 

Introducing Salish Sea Wild!

 

Join the adventure and explore the Pacific Northwest’s most amazing ecosystem with wildlife veterinarian Joe Gaydos and Team SeaDoc.

Traveling from the salmon streams born in snow-capped mountains to the rich upwellings of the Pacific Ocean, our team will encounter the wildlife—the iconic orcas, giant octopus, ancient rockfish, precocious sea lions, and the bears, seabirds and other captivating creatures—that depend on this diverse environment.

We’ll partner with the scientists advancing our knowledge of these natural wonders and learn how we can all work to preserve our precious emerald sea.

It’s going to be fun, fascinating, and oh yeah: it’s gonna be wild!

Attend the debut on Orcas Island Jan 9th. View the Facebook event.
