Sun Bathing Sea Lion

Although the California sea lion (Zalophus californianus) is not considered endangered, there are provisions in place for their protection. Sustainable travel involves protecting the ecology of every place--even those to which one has not yet traveled. Visiting accredited zoological parks like this one contributes to conservation efforts for many species.
