Episode 1: Stellers are the world’s largest species of sea lion. Early observers called them sea lions because the males grow large, furry manes, but when we compare these top predators to land animals, we think of them as the grizzlies of the sea. In our debut episode of Salish Sea Wild, the team heads up to Hornby Island on a frigid winter week to dive with hundreds of these magnificent creatures. Written and produced by Bob Friel.

This is a family group known as the T123's which consists of a 32-Year-old Mother (Sidney) and her two kids, T123A a 17-year-old male (Stanley), and T123C her 5-year-old daughter(Lucky). They were traveling along when suddenly everything changed when they pursued a large Steller Sea lion. This is the video from that scene. Lots of aerial action today. In the video, you can sometimes see the sea lion. It did not appear that they finished or ate the sea lion and after the attack, they quickly moved out of the area. All three family members got involved in the hunt, but you will notice the 5-year-old gets in there quite a bit at the end. It's always amazing to see how young these animals in to learn the skills to survive. This footage was taken along the north shore of San Juan Island. We are just 90 miles north of Seattle, join us for a whale watching tour! (Traci apologizes for the zooming in and out. Adrenaline was rushing! ) Please note this video was taken with a 600mm lens while abiding by whale watching regulations that can be found at bewhalewise.org For information about our tours visit WesternPrince.com For further information about the conservation of the Endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales and Bigg's Killer Whales visit whaleresearch.com Western Prince is on Instagram & Facebook! http://instagram.com/orcawhalewatch https://www.facebook.com/WesternPrinceWhaleWatching To use this video in a commercial player or in broadcasts, please email [email protected]

We took a trip with Hornby Island Diving to Hornby Island, off the coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, to see their Steller sea lions. These big mammals were very curious and wanted to check us out and nibble on our gear. We did two dives with them, spending about two hours total interacting with them.

Footage available for Licensing contact [email protected] - Diving with Steller Sea Lions has been #1 on my radar years and It did not disappoint! Diving with these colonies of large 700-1200lb sea lions was one of the best big animal dive experiences of my life. They are curious, playful, pushy, sweet, and cheeky animals. Most of this video is shot with a Sony RX100 MIV in a Fantasea Line housing. Original footage shot in 4k. I am looking at running another trip to this area diving with Sea Lions, walls and wrecks April 9-13th 2016. Space is limited so email me if you are interested in joining us! [email protected]

A Humpback Whale and Steller Sea Lions Mating Calls They mate and give birth on land. Births occur mid-May to mid-July and peak in June. In May, dominant males (nine years and older) establish their breeding territories on rookeries, and maintain them for approximately 40 days without eating. During this time, the males establish a harem and mate with many females on their territories, demonstrating their polygamous nature.Mating occurs soon after the birth of the previous year’s pups. The pups drink their mother’s milk, and they enter the water at four to six weeks. Some pups will nurse from one to three years, but most are believed to wean before their first birthday. Females give birth to one pup and may not give birth every year. Pups are able to crawl and swim soon after birth. Females accept only their pups, recognizing their pup’s vocal and olfactory cues. Pups will approach other females, but are often bitten or thrown by females who have their own pups. Males defend territories for an average of two years. There is a high incidence of aborted Steller sea lion fetuses in the wild. Pups are sometimes killed or injured from: a storm washing them away from a rookery, by adults tossing, biting, or crushing them, or by abandonment and disease.

Caution: this video may be upsetting to some viewers. Watch as a team from The Vancouver Aquarium's Marine Mammal Rescue Centre save a female Steller sea lion entangled in plastic rope off Vancouver Island. The Steller sea lion is a species of special concern in Canada, and certain populations are endangered in parts of Alaska. Throughout the years, human activities have been one of the greatest threats to Steller sea lions. In addition to pollution, oil spills and environmental contaminants, these large sea mammals are prone to becoming tangled in debris and may be injured or killed by the waste entering their habitats. Together, these threats can all add up to a population in decline. By signing the #BePlasticWise pledge you can make small, impactful changes to reduce single-use plastic and help protect marine life: http://ow.ly/A7hv30j59BZ

In January 2012, four transient killer whales (T068, T068A, T075B, and T075B1) worked together to battle, subdue, kill, and feast on a huge Steller sea lion in Spieden Channel, just north of San Juan Island. This stunning action is captured in this video! Steller sea lions weigh about 2000 pounds, and they're powerful and dangerous for killer whales to attack because the sea lions' sharp canine teeth can wound the whales. So killer whales ram these huge sea lions with spectacular leaps to cause internal bleeding, weakening an attacked sea lion until the killer whales can safely grab it and hold it underwater to drown it for a killer whale feast. Steller sea lions usually rest on rocky shorelines for safety from killer whales. But killer whales, which are highly intelligent, have learned to breach in front of them to frighten them into the water, where they can be isolated and attacked. Killer whales have also been seen playing decoy with sea lions: one killer whale, usually a large male, will swim close to the sea lions, seemingly taunting them, as the other whales sneak up behind the sea lions to grab them as they slip into the water to escape. I'm very grateful to Karl Bruder of Lonesome Cove Resort on San Juan Island, WA, for filming this spectacular killer whale hunt (through a spotting scope) and sending me the video files for production. Thanks also to Marine Biologist Josh McInnes for sharing his thorough knowledge of killer whale hunting techniques, and to Dave Ellifrit of the Center for Whale Research for identifying these killer whales. The cover photo of Steller sea lions roaring on a rocky outcrop was taken by me.

Scuba Diving with California and Steller Sea Lions off Hornby Island, Canada, January 2013. Most of the video was shot using the Hero2 GoPro video camera. It's amazing at what self video footage you can get with the GoPro. Some segments were shot using the Canon 5DMII. Though I am from the PNW and have been diving here for the past 12 years this trip was organized by Florida Underwater Sports. If you're ever in Florida be sure to check them out. The sea lions migrate up from California for the winter. The more mature sea lions pretty much stay away from divers but the juveniles are incredibly curious and playful just like puppy dogs. There is nothing we do to attract their attention other than get into the water with them. In fact the idea is to just be in the water and not do anything. No chasing, no touching, just swim. The conditions for this trip were pretty close to optimal. The air was stagnent for several days so the water was very calm. There hadn't been any sun in a while so there was no algea growth. There hadn't been any rain so there was no run off from the land areas. The water temperature was running about 42-43 degrees. These conditions in addition to a particularly large number of juvenile sea lions made for excellent diving and visibility conditions. In one frame of another video I was able to count 60 sea lions. That number plus all the sea lions you couldn't see in the frame added up to a fairly large number. This is not dangerous but the divers need to be experienced and confident in their scuba skills. As you can see in the video there are a lot of them and they just pile on top of each other and you. This can make for a very intimidating experience and divers need to be very much in control. Because they are curious and they have no other way to check you out, they lightly bite on your arms, legs, fins and even your head just to investigate who and what you are. Because they are playful they will tug on your equipment including your mask. You need to keep your hands in close and be prepared to hold on to your mask. Some of these sea lions have been known to pull the mask off ones head. Again, not dangerous but only a confident diver would effectively respond and handle the situation correctly. Divers need to respect the fact that these are wild animals and follow all the rules of scuba diving and the divemaster. You shouldn't directly interact with them but just let them be curious and check you out. Don't touch or play directly with them. Just be there and let them check you out. Be sure to Like and Share with your friends if you in fact like this video. Thanks for watching.

The gift! Suddenly there they were - 3 juvenile Steller Sea Lions (species protected as "of special concern"). Spinning around one another, so astoundingly agile, spinning around us and then, even settling down directly across from us so we were eye-to-eye. It was so beautiful too to watch from below when they were at the surface, silhouetted against the sunlight, so tactile with one another, and then down they came again. We don't target seal or sea lion haulouts, not wanting to force an interaction and potentially contribute to habituation. Habituated wild animals lose their wariness which may not work well for them, or us. But sometimes . . . they find us. Note that targeting sea lions for interactions is against Marine Mammal Guidelines and the draft Marine Mammal Regulations. "The MMR currently prohibit the disturbance of marine mammals, and the proposed Regulations would further define "disturb" as approaching the marine mammal to feed it, swim with it or otherwise interact with it; move it or entice or cause it to move from the immediate vicinity in which it is found; or tag or mark it, and approaching the marine mammal to attempt to do any of those things." This interaction came about by chance when diving nowhere near a haul out or rookery. For the marine mammal regulations see - http://www.gazette.gc.ca/rp-pr/p1/2012/2012-03-24/html/reg2-eng.html. For the guidelines re. sea lions see http://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fm-gp/species-especes/mammals-mammiferes/view-observer-eng.html.

On March 10, 2014, a sea lion was disentangled with help from Vancouver Aquarium Marine Mammal Rescue Centre and Fisheries and Oceans Canada staff. Acting on reports of a sea lion with garbage around its neck, the team ventured into Fanny Bay, north of Nanaimo on the west coast of Vancouver Island. They came across a Steller sea lion that had a large scar from when it was previously entangled, but they did not find the sea lion in question. The team eventually came across another sea lion at the other end of the bay, this time a young male California sea lion, that had garbage stuck around its neck. The Aquarium's veterinarian, Dr. Martin Haulena, tranquilized it before cutting the plastic strap off and treating the wound. The Vancouver Aquarium runs the Marine Mammal Rescue Centre where it treats "inpatients." It also works cooperatively with other organizations to rescue and treat animals in the ocean. Many thanks to Canadian Wildlife Federation for their support on this project.

What really happens after a Steller sea lion plunges into the ocean? Researchers are relying on underwater video footage to find out. Cameras are attached to sea lion harnesses, allowing them to see what goes on beneath the surface. Much of the research takes place in Indian Arm, a body of water just outside Vancouver. This allows the sea lions to dive deeper and swim farther than they could at the Vancouver Aquarium. Mimicking real-world conditions in a controlled setting makes this research project unique and effective. What researchers want to find out is how much energy Steller sea lions spend looking for food. They want to see if there's a link between this and the decline of Steller sea lions in the wild. Watch as this sea lion takes you on a journey through a bloom of jellies and beyond.
