Galapagos Sea Lions try to sleep soundly on the beaches after spending the night hunting in the ocean for food. This isn't always easy as the Mockingbirds continually stalk them looking up their noses for flies and other tasty treats! The Espanola Mockingbird is a little known species that is classified as vulnerable by the IUCN red list because it has an extremely limited range being restricted to two small islands. The Galapagos Sea Lion has a fluctuating population size and a suggested decline of 50% over the past 30 years and is classified as Endangered.
