>> unfortunately, have seen our numbers rising over the years. there are more sick and injured animals out there needing help. >> popping season is here. that's what they call a time bar. california coastline is really full of my young sea lions and seals. most of them will grow up and do just fine. but some of them will end up needing help. yeah, this year, the marine mammal center says the problem is it. >> people are getting way too close to the animals on the beaches and that is increasing the number of pups that wind up needing care kron four's noelle bellow explains. >> that's the sound of feeding time. it happened several times a day at the marine mammal center home to elephant seals harbor seals and california sea lions who need a little extra care rescue. any sick or injured marine mammal within 600 miles of california coast. and you see the most number of patients this time of year. adam ratner has worked at the center for over a decade.
10:54 pm
>> but he's noticed a shift in recent years as their patient numbers continue to climb. right now, what we're seeing is a lot more animals coming in due to human interaction. unfortunately, people are trying to help and a lot of cases, but they're getting too close to these animals and they can separate them center. nestled in the marin, headlands says negative human interaction with the pups as a growing problem in the bay area. specifically visitors to san mateo marin and sonoma county coast lines are getting too close for comfort. both really fortunate to have lots of wild seals and sea lions that share a shorter, but also just means we have to take a little extra effort to make sure that we're giving them the space they need while enjoying the beaches ourselves. right now is the height of pupping season. the marine mammal center is caring for about 130 patients. that means they're using about 1000 pounds of sustainably caught herring. is feeding stay. >> we go through a lot of ratner says elephant seal pups typically come into the center
10:55 pm
about 200 pounds underweight. they eat at least 3 times a day. many working their way up from a fish eating 5 pounds of herring. each the feedings are led by vets and carried out by volunteers by looking so cute. cuddly volunteers never get too close. so even though we have to be around these animals to help better want to minimize the level of interaction with them. and that way they keep all those wild in staying just as the experts keep their distance inside the center. they want you to keep yours out on the shore to seal and sea lion spend a fair amount of time up on beaches. so just seeing any more out of water doesn't mean it sick. if you see any cuts, scratches or people around it are dogs off leash. that could be a sign that they might have some trauma. >> so that's why you just give us a call. we can send a team of trained experts out there of do they need help? were they just resting and make sure that they get on the right path to recovery. pupping season ends in june. but the center rescues mammals
