NOVA takes you inside a very special ER to showcase the efforts of a renowned team of wildlife veterinarians as they fight to save sick and injured ocean mammals including full-grown feisty California sea lions and adorable but weak harbor seal pups. For many of their patients, The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, California, makes the difference between life and death. Witness amazing rescues of ocean mammals in distress and marvel at the cutting-edge research into many of the diseases plaguing these animals, some the result of the devastating effect that humans have on our environment. Ocean Animal Emergency gives an insider's view of the work of wild animal veterinarians and illustrates the devastating changes happening in the ecology of our oceans.
