sea lion eating fish

Please tell NOAA to end the “Lethal Take” of the Columbia River sea lions who are eating fish! The political scapegoating and killing of sea lions for eating fish needs to end!

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

[Ed. Note: The number of fish "available" for humans to eat has diminished because humans eat so many fishes. This is NOT a problem caused by sea lions who have been eating fish for millions of years...]

Sea Lion Defense Brigade reports that a lot of young animals were seen in Astoria’s east mooring basin this weekend with fresh brand burns, and bleeding scars on their backs.

ODFW claims this hot branding does not hurt sea lions, but the burns on their backs and the pain in their eyes tell a different story.
