Why are we trying to save them? If anything, sea lions are pests. Pigeons of the sea. Let them starve - it's only natural. Don't **** with natural selection.

Sea lion overpopulation is caused by the people who think they're protecting wildlife. They want to play God and now look what they've done. Julie Packard and MBARI should be ashamed for all the harm they have caused the oceans and those who depend on the ocean. They want to protect everything from us humans. They want to change what nature has established for millions of years. It's just starting now with the starvation phase. Soon disease will set in and we will have a sea lion flu within a year or two. Once the flu has begun we're going to have an open season on sealions. Mad cow disease... millions of cows were shot and buried. Bird flu... millions were killed and buried. Swine flu... you get the idea. Hippy flu... now we're talkin!
The Monterey Bay Aquarium is one of the best things that have ever happened to this area, it has educated millions about the sea life and ecosystem that surrounds us. What have you done for the planet! Your comment has reflected your ignorance....RED NECK and proud of it.

With all the restrictions now, why do they still let these damn boats in to rape the ocean of the bait... Haven't they figured out by now that the little fish feed the big fish etc... BaitWars Season 1

Are we not compassionate human beings?
Are we not responsible for global warming and commercial fishing?

What this will likely lead to is a greater population of great whites in the bay, likely off of sea cliff, west side, point lobos, big sir places where there is not a heavy kelp forest, a lot of rocks and deep water.

We all know what are the problems, first of course is Globo Worming but also does fisherman’s that take all the resources for them, I ask one of the people from the Marine Mammal Center and he said there nothing they can do.
They could stop does fisherman’s for a wild they don’t need to get the fish every day they need to control them, they are the people who are taken the food for them, they need to realize that are not the only people who need to survive from the sea.
We need to ask them, how they will feel if the same thing happened to them.

Swine flu will be nature's way of culling California overpopulation. Do your part: skip immunization and decline treatment when you exhibit symptoms. To quote another poster: "Don't mess with natural selection".
