SEA LION FACTS: An endangered species, sea lions (Zalaphus wollebaeki) hang out in large colonies on rocks and sandy shores on the Galápagos Islands. They move into the water to cool off as needed. Weighing up to 400 pounds, they grow to 6 feet in length. They are highly vulnerable to the effects of climate change on ocean currents as it impacts their prey abundance. They are also victims of bycatch in fisheries.
