Telemetry on Wild Sea Lions: Facilities
The surgery location at Alaska Sea Life Center’s (ASLC) “South Beach” is a special quarantine facility designed to house wild animals. This special facility prevents them from spreading disease to captive animals housed separately at ASLC and most importantly ensures they do catch or spread any disease back into the wild population once they are released. Veterinarians perform surgeries in a separate surgical container used only for the LHX project.
