Introduction

On February 16, 2012 the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Marine Mammal Investigations responded to a six-month-old Steller sea lion pup stranded at Pacific Beach, Washington. They collected the emaciated pup and transferred it to Wolf Hollow Rehabilitation Center on San Juan Island for stabilization, treatment, and care. Staff members named the pup “Mojo”. He responded well to rehabilitation and more than doubled his weight. On May 29, 2012 he was released wearing a temporary satellite transmitter designed to track his movements post-release.

Project Partners

This is project of NOAA’s Northwest Marine Mammal Stranding Network, which responds to stranded marine mammals in Washington and Oregon. The stranding response, rehabilitation and post-release monitoring was made possible, in large part, through the John H. Prescott Marine Mammal Rescue Assistance Grant Program. Collaborating network groups that made this project possible include the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Marine Mammal Investigations, Wolf Hollow Rehabilitation Center, SeaDoc Society, and NOAA's Protected Resources Division.
