SARDINE SMILE: This hungry sea lion pup—one of dozens rescued and mended by Dr. Sam Dover and his wife, Ruth, (below) every year at their Channel Islands Marine and Wildlife Institute—was released back on the Islands just a couple weeks after this picture was taken. Fattened up and treated for wounds, the pup learned to hunt on his own thanks to the Dovers’ care and is reportedly doing well back out in the wild.
