Watch: Sea Lion Rescued Off Dana Point

The finale features a sea lion cuddle party suitable for calendars!

A crew from the Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach on Wednesday rescued a sick sea lion—since nicknamed Abby—that beached herself on some rocks at Strands Beach in Dana Point.

Yep, Abby was stranded at Strands.

Rescuers used a GoPro video camera to record the whole thing from a first-person perspective.

The PMMC reports that Abby is now resting "with her other pen-mates/characters, McGee, Franks, TonyD, Gibbs, Ziva and Ducky."

Apparently those are all names of characters on the TV show NCIS ...

Bonus shots of a sea lion cuddle party at the end of the video!
