Record numbers of starving baby sea lions continue to wash ashore in California and the problem has shown no sign of abating. According to the New York Times, experts suspect that unusually warm waters are causing food to become more scarce, causing the mother to leave their pups on their own while the mother hunts for food. Left on their own, the pups can not find food and become sick and emaciated, swimming to shore to prevent themselves from drowning.
