Response to Inside An Orphanage For Sea Lions:
Do not boycott commercial fisheries, demand that they harvest fish in ways that do not harm marine life. Fisherman are the eyes and ears of the ocean; they are most represented society to call in a sick or stranded marine mammal. They are also the answer to the marine mammal’s future; it’s people’s demand for fish that is depleting the ocean and fishermen are merely fulfilling that demand. BTW, who am I? I”m someone who is feeding those starving sea lions. I work at one of CA’s marine mammal rescue centers. Fishermen are our partners, not our enemies.
