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.
