WorldsAquarium is proud to announce that we will be starting a Sea Lion Rescue program for the Northern Sea of Cortes. On the 7th of November Myself and Elsa Galindo local Sea Lion Vet. traveled to La Paz, Baja Sur to train with experts from the Marine Mammal Center (MMC) out of Sausalito California in the latest protocols. So many Sea Lions are entangled in mono-filament fishing line each year through out the Sea of Cortes. There is nothing more heat breaking than to watch a Sea Lion slowly strangled to death by carelessly discarded mono-filament fishing line. As these pictures below graphically demonstrate. That is why we have decided to start a program. Within the next few weeks I will be releasing details on our trip to La Paz and what it will cost us to set up this so badly needed program!!

Worlds Aquarium (WA) is a 501 C 3 non profit dedicated to sustainable management of marine resources in the Sea of Cortes. We are currently working with grant writers on submission of proposals to various foundations for the year of 2016. In a few days WA will publish it’s grand vision for San Carlos along with it’s newest crowd sourced campaign for Vaqutia Marina. We just wrapped up our efforts to stop the illegal exportation of dorado to the U.S.A. and are now awaiting the decisions of the Presidential Task Force on IUU.
Our most recent story of Sport Fisherman Senselessly killing a small shark can be seen here. This has got to end here in San Carlos.
