A Steller sea lion cow (Eumetopias jubatus) exchanges a “kiss” with her pup. Lowrie is a small island on the north end of Forrester National Wildlife Refuge; it serves as the rookery of the world’s largest concentration of these mammals. About 5,000 gather here at the height of the breeding/pupping season in late June and early July. Biologists puzzle over the fact that the species is faring so badly in relatively wild Alaska. Slow starvation may be the answer, since its principal food, pollock, has become increasingly popular with human competitors.
