Galápagos sea lion

Zalophus wollebaeki


The photo and video were taken on Mosquera Island. In the video, a young Galápagos sea lion is returning from playing in the ocean and is getting a bit too close to a 'stranger' after greeting his presumed mum, who makes sure her bub is safe. You can find the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nbC5fa88...


Project Noah's Youtube linking still has not been fixed (after more than one year). Neither YouTube video links ("Add a video" - "Error from YouTube: No longer available") nor the maps ("Search" function) appear to work anymore. If anyone knows permanent solutions to either of these bugs, please let me know. Map: Shifting the pin works - but the Search option does not (when a location name rather than coordinates is typed). Videos: The videos exist but cannot be added in the "Add a video" section.
