NPR's Melissa Block talks with Greg Gerstenberg, a wildlife biologist for the California Department of Fish and Game, about rescuing a 300-pound sea lion from a farm in the San Joaquin Valley, more than 60 miles from the ocean. Workers cornered the animal as it sunned itself on a California Highway Patrol cruiser.
