Sea lion die off worsens

The Guardian reports that the sea lion problem is much worse than years before.

       According to Noaa, more than 4,200 sick sea lions have been washed up inCalifornia so far this year, comfortably the greatest number of strandings over the past decade. A further 100 Guadalupe fur seals and 150 northern fur seals have also been washed up, state-wide.

This time the problem is attributed to El Nino.
