Little change in western Steller sea lion population

The western population of Steller sea lions in Alaska has grown relatively little in the past three years. That’s according to new numbers released by the National Marine Fisheries Service this week. The agency will keep protections in place for the marine mammals, which have been on the endangered species list since 1997.
