12:46 pm
year for you guys. is that right thing this time? here it is. indeed springtime is pops season. so with that we have ah, lot of animals here on site almost 100, different marine mammal patients on site right now, and so there's a lot of ways. tol of try to describe the environment and climate change something like that. but we'll talk. earlier with these these c line elephant seals, they're impacted by climate change directly. that's what you're seeing. your concern is you are consumer is quite high for elephant seals and other seal patients that but because they pop on beaches and as the sea levels arrive in climate change causes very severe weather. we can lose really critical popping beaches for these animals, so we have many on hand right now, and that's pretty consistent over the years, but in future we're very concerned about what that would mean for the population and i know there's a lot of research that takes place here and you were mentioning earlier that you're kind of looking into the
12:47 pm
connection with cancer and some the pollutants that air actually fairly old. well way below but still having an impact on some of the marine life. exactly so what we found by doing research with the sea lions that strand is that one in four adult california sea lions that washes a sword that comes in here has cancer, and it is devastating to those animals. there's no way to treat them and what we found for doing this research for over 40 years, collecting samples and really, for seriously studying it, that it's associate id with pollution, specifically with ddt and pcbs that stay in the environment for years and years, so that's a huge concern, obviously for the sea lions, but also for us because we share that environment and often eat the same kinds of food as they do. that's that's very impressive, invaluable information that is coming from the center in this hospital. i said i should also ask you, you know, just it's such a cloudy and foggy day here. there's not a lot of people at the coast.
12:48 pm
but you know what's the clouds clear? this crowds tend to come to the coast and people just very basic. small actions could have a huge impact on basically on the health of the ocean and all these guys, absolutely. our patients are here because they have ah, need. there's something wrong there, malnourished or sick or have been undergone, too. rama. so we want people to enjoy the beaches and enjoy the animals, hopefully from a bit of a distance, they're very charismatic. but what we do has an impact every day. so what we bring to the beach what we leave behind, especially in heaven impact on not just on the beaches but anywhere, so we encourage people to make good decisions about their trash reducing use of plastics and just kind of reduced our impact on the earth in general. and of course, if you see an animal that looks like it's in distressed to call us or or your local wildlife rehabilitation center. that can help. well great. thank you so much for your great work here or are you did you tired of all this fog? you want more sunshine, actually unfairly not
12:49 pm
exposed to this spring, but yeah, it's these animals are incredible, and unfortunately, we're still closed to the public right now, but we hope that people can enjoy them here and now in the wild, and if people want to help if they want to be a part of change, they can help us here by texting ocean to four. 1444 or get involved locally with other organizations that are supporting all these incredible studies and environmental and animal health. perfect well, thank you so much for your time today. absolutely talk a little bit about this foggy weather right now. yeah we start some claws, clouds in the fog and drizzle in the headlines right now, but yeah, we're still talking about some rain chances this weekend fact a fairly good chance as we head towards sunday. you could see the forecast model. there we are sunday. we're actually tracking a system that will produce him pretty steady down. for us here in. these numbers have been changed around quite a bit. but as you can see, we're not just talking about a few sprinkles most areas over a quarter to over a half an inch of rain, especially up in the north bay,
12:50 pm
so that will be on sunday. today though, we have the cloud cover lots of fog in places becoming closer. and if you can hear me with all the all the craziness behind me with all those elephant seals, but here, you can't see the fog the other coast out towards san francisco even up in the north bay, santa rosa napa still some overcast to deal with, so that's having a huge impact. act on temperatures right now fifties for san francisco, sixties inland out toward walnut creek and conquered for today, we'll either have partly cloudy skies inland, mostly cloudy skies near the coast and near the bay and temperatures for afternoon highs in the fifties and the sixties. here's look ahead your five day minimal change for your friday well, thinking up the clouds into saturday. it's nice to have that rain cloud back in the forecast in the sunday which is the chance of a shower into monday, but mike and garcia great to be out here once again the marine mammal center for earth day. mentioned earlier that i came out here for the fifth grade field trip, but back in the day, so always some special memories. it's always impressive with a great work here. it is a gem. thank
