Rescued sea lions make their way back to the ocean

Two sea lions recently rehabilitated at the Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach became the best of friends during their stay.  The sea lions, rescued on Huntington Beach within ten days of each other last November, arrived at the center malnourished and in need of some TLC.

"Sea lions are very social animals. Some just really bond with one another," Michele Hunter, the center's animal care director, told the Orange County Register. "You have the little buddies and stuff, but these two were just inseparable."

The Register took this moving video of their release back to the Pacific ocean.
