Sea Lions: Life By A Whisker, a new giant-screen film, invites audiences to join the journey of an endangered Australian sea lion pup named Otto as she learns to navigate her beautiful but harsh coastal environment with the help of her mother and others in her colony. Follow marine park ranger Dirk Holman as he conducts population surveys as part of his effort to protect Australia’s sea lion population, then heads to California to learn from veterinarians and volunteers at the Marina Mammal Center in Sausolito, which rescue, rehabilitate, and release hundreds of sea lions each year. Back home in Australia, Dirk finds Otto’s colony on a new island, a place he hopes to support as a sanctuary for the sea lion colony.
