Sea Lions: Life by A Whisker

Photo 1 SL_1.1.10


Between a cliff face and an ocean lives one of the rarest marine mammals on the planet, the Australian sea lion, and one very special pup named Otto. Embark on an epic quest from the wilderness of the Great Australian Bight to the lush kelp forests off the Californian coast. Encounter humpback whales, great white sharks, and one Marine Park Ranger on a mission to save a species.
