Seward Celebrating…A Steller Sea Lion is Expecting

The Alaska  Sea Life Center is celebrating big news. One of the center’s female Steller sea lions is pregnant.

It’s the first time in two decades a Steller has been expecting a pup in captivity in the U.S. And researchers hope monitoring the experience will offer clues into why the population is struggling so much in the wild.
