The California Wildlife Center opened the doors of its seasonal Marine Mammal Rehabilitation Center earlier this year to accommodate large amounts of young California sea lions in need of rescue. 

An unusual mortality event was declared for California Sea Lions, beginning in 2013 with the highest reported stranding rates occurring in Los Angeles County.
