Steller sea lion is a sea lion, the largest mammal of the order Seals are in the Pacific, in its northern part, respectively, Kamchatka falls just at the eastern edge of the distribution range of these animals. In general, the nature of these animals is not much, the poor are dying ... Frankly, they just have very little. And, it is only natural that our country sank these little animals under protection - showing this solidarity with other countries and international environmental organizations.
