Refugio Incident Update 8/19/2015

Photos and updates on animals affected by the Refugio Incident, provided by the Joint Information Center:

Three California sea lions returned to the wild off the California coast near San Diego on August 16, after wildlife care experts determined they were ready for release.  They were wearing satellite tags so scientists can track their activities following their rehabilitation after the oil spill. Wildlife experts captured the sea lions during the Refugio Oil Spill Response that started on May 19, when Pipeline 901 leaked oil into the Pacific Ocean in northern Santa Barbara County.
