I love videos of animals being released back into the wild. :) So heartwarming. A baby sea lion pup made headlines when he was found starving and disoriented in a dangerous commuter ferry crossing spot near the Alcatraz Island last month.

Congratulations Lindsey - So happy for you ! And this is a great video - thank you. I loved how the first one came out, a little hesitant at first in knowing which way to go, then the second seal was released, and quickly instinct snapped in - together and hauling butt to the open sea ! What a joy!

Back where they belong. Gotta love that. I've always respected and admired the Marine Mammal Center's work.

i am glad all the pup made it to the water safely, at first they seem confused but after it went to their natural habitat, is that amazing or what!

How great to see that there are some decent, caring people on the planet, after all. So glad they all made it back to the sea where they belong.

God speed and God bless little ones. Hope you have a long healthy life and stay away from humans. They are evil.
