What can sea lions teach us about the state of coastal California fisheries? It won't surprise you that they can teach us plenty. But, what do they have to tell us about cancer? Disturbingly, there's a tale to tell there as well. Dr. Jeff Boehm, veterinarian and Executive Director of The Marine Mammal Center, will describe the work of this non-profit hospital for seals and sea lions, located in the Marin Headlands, and explain the connection between its patients and our understanding of the health of our oceans.
