OR Coast Aquarium Welcomes New Sea Lion

(Newport, OR) -- The Oregon Coast Aquarium is welcoming a new sea lion. Officials say 24-year-old Nemo is from the Animal Training and Research International Center in Monterey, California. Nemo was a victim of El Nino conditions and also had an injury to his jaw that required removal of bone fragments and several teeth. He was found stranded when he was two years old, and his injuries kept him from being released into the wild. The facility in Monterey suffered severe financial losses during the pandemic, so its animals were sent to other facilities.
