Sea Lions

Life by a Whisker

Sea Lions: Life by a Whisker is a classic coming of age tale filled with hope, humour and wonder, told through a vast ocean that connects us all. Between a jagged cliff face and a roaring ocean, lives one of the rarest marine mammals on the planet, the Australian Sea Lion, and one very special pup named Otto. Curious, intelligent and playful, this family of whiskers needs our help.
A heart-warming journey of a sea lion pup, and the man that has dedicated his life trying to save her species. Embark on an epic quest through the uninhabited wilderness of the Great Australian Bight, to the lush kelp forests off the Californian coast. Encounter giant humpback whales, cunning cuttlefish, great white sharks and one Marine Park Ranger on a mission to find out what it takes to save a species.
