Imagine caring for a 750-pound bull sea lion who's totally blind. That's what staffers at the Marine Mammal Care Center in San Pedro are doing, as they try to find him a permanent home.
The sea lion's name, appropriately enough is "Big Guy," and because of his blindness, he can't be released back into the ocean.
"Big Guy" was first brought to the care center more than a year ago, suffering from both his blindness and a large gash in his mouth. He'd been found on a Santa Monica beach.
The care center staffers are hoping that a zoo, aquarium or other facility will take him.
If you'd like to make a donation to help the center continue providing care for "Big Guy," you can find out how by going to the center's website at marinemammalcare.org.
The staffers say you can also stop by the center and drop off a donation. The address is 3601 S. Gaffey St., San Pedro. You can also call the center at 310-548-5677.
