“Explore This” travel host Kinga Philipps made a new friend a few months ago while boating near Los Angeles. Emmy the sea lion hopped aboard her boat and being the animal and nature lover that she is, Kinga took care of the pup who was in need of care. Hear how Kinga contacted Marine Mammal Care who helped nurse Emmy back to health and back to the wild.

If you come across a stranded marine mammal (or one that needs help) – you can call Marine Animal Rescue at (800) 39-WHALE or donate to help @marinemammalcare.
