Whether it's caused by El Niño or climate change, things aren't looking so great for some of our favorite marine mammals.
A week ago, a seal lion pup wandered into a fancy California restaurant.
It was an adorable story of a wayward pup at The Marine Room in La Jolla, California.
But it turns out the pup, nicknamed Marina, wasn't looking for hot brunch spot; she was looking for help.
When sea lions can't find food, they're forced to make their way to the shore to prevent from drowning. Sadly, on shore, there's not exactly a huge supply of food awaiting them, either.
