The Pacific Marine Mammal center in Laguna Beach, California, has had a recent increase in severely malnourished and dehydrated pups coming to shore along the Orange Country coastline.
The following pictures were taken at the center and show these adorable little sea lions living their life the best way that they can. Day by day. Fish by fish. Stay strong, little babes.

10. My heart is basically a pile of mush.
11. And with that, I have ceased to exist. These adorable little orphan sea lions pups have killed me.
SAVE THE SEA LIONS, PEOPLE.
