NATURE | A Mystery in Alaska | Trailer | PBS

Duration: 01:20

Steller sea lions are rapidly disappearing from one of the last great wildlife strongholds of the world, and no one knows why. As scientists and environmentalists race the clock to find answers, pressure has been growing on Alaska’s fishing industry to suspend most of its pollock fishing, on the suspicion that it is robbing Steller sea lions of an important source of food. But new research illustrated in this film shows that a broad combination of factors could be responsible for the sea lions’ plight.
