Sick and stranded seals and sea lions are found from time to time along the West Coast. 

But usually not as many as are turning up this year. 

The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito reports 446 of the animals brought into the center this year. 

That's already a record, and the year is not even half over.  Center director Jeff Boehm joins us to talk about the symptoms the animals are displaying, and the possible causes.
