It never fails to fill us with "awe" when we get the chance to see these amazing animals up-close.
When filming from shore we've been within feet of seals, sea lions and otters swimming past our cameras. All of these creatures live so gracefully in the water - if not a bit awkwardly on land.
These incredible moments make us realize that saving the endangered species among them is not impossible. We truly feel that if everyone could see them in their natural homes, the desire to help them would be nearly unanimous.
