Watch a baby sea lion climb aboard the ship of good hope and realize that he’s been rescued.
A sea lion pup, seemingly malnourished and struggling, came aboard a small boat off of Newport Beach, California and was greeted with open arms.
While the baby animal obviously could have used some love and affection, it’s not certain if there was a real problem or just a case of “man meets baby seal.”
Any time people can help animals in need, it certainly seems the right thing to do.
As caretakers of the planet we have to remember that not all young animals are always in distress when alone. If there is ever a question, make sure to get the proper authorities involved.
