Hi there! Nice to sea you!
How can we help the California sea lions not mistake our trash for their food? California Sea Lions Migrate through California year-round, which means that they get their food along the West Coast of the US, Canada, and Mexico. In a search for food, they often end up becoming entangled in the remains of fishing nets that float in their habitats. These fishing nets come from the evil ways of ghost fishing. Ghost fishing is when fishers cut their fishing nets after they get caught on rocks or coral. This can lead to sea lions getting caught in these nets. They swim for long distances with the net attached to them, and can lead to fatigue and severe injuries, which may lead to death. Also, they can become stuck on the ocean floor and die from lack of oxygen. This a very serious and tragic problem that needs a serious and effective solution a soon as possible.
