Wildlife Nation  >  Episode 21

Join host Jeff Corwin on an epic adventure to the stunning coast of California to connect with the giants of the sea: elephant seals. Jeff works alongside conservationists fighting to protect elephant seal habitats, collects important data on elephant seal migration, and helps ensure the next generation of pups are thriving. Jeff learns about the powerful connection between elephant seal mothers and babies and discovers new information about their time in the open ocean. Later, Jeff works to bring three rescued sea lions back to their homes in the wild.

Behind the Scenes

Protecting Coastal Habitat

Coasts and beaches are facing a barrage of threats including climate change, severe weather, pollution, and offshore drilling. Learn more about what it takes to keep a wildlife- and visitor-friendly coast and how individual efforts, even far inland, can make a difference!

We’re Part of the Solution

Biodiversity doesn’t just mean losing entire species. The relationships between species fade, shift and break as populations decline and the ecosystems, and the services they provide, suffer as well. Read more about what Defenders is doing for biodiversity and how we can all be part of the solution!


A Crucial Piece of the Puzzle to Fight Against Climate Change

Climate change increases the intensity and frequency of weather events and will continue to wreak havoc unless we do something about it. Learn how protecting wildlife and biodiversity plays a key role in the fight against climate change by utilizing nature’s ability to absorb and store carbon!
