Sea Lions Nursed Back to Health Released in Lima

Sea Lions released in Lima

Lima, Peru saw the heartwarming story about a couple of sea lions, who were struggling to stay alive after being hit by fishermen, named Camilo and Alex released back into the ocean. While it only took a month to get the sea lions back to good health, the environmental activists who cared for them worry about the animals' safety as the group often finds hurt sea lions on the coast.

Two sea lions have been released into the bay off Peru's capital after being nursed back to health by environmental activists.

Activists say the two sea lions suffered from pneumonia and hemorrhagic gastritis. They say those ailments are thought to have developed as a result of the animals being hit by fishermen.

The Peruvian environmental group Orca has for years been rescuing and rehabilitating injured sea lions.
