California Sea Lion Yearling
A possibly abandoned yearling California sea lion on a beach in Los Angeles, California shows that it is far too thin. This has been a common sight in recent years with far too many pups and yearlings not getting enough food to eat. Warmer waters in recent years means that the mother has to venture out further to sea to get enough food to nourish her young.
