Welcome to season 3 of Aquadocs! Thank you to everyone who made the previous two seasons so successful. To kick off our new season, host Michelle Greenfield interviews Dr. Alissa Deming, vice president of conservation medicine and science at Pacific Marine Mammal Center. Dr. Deming describes her day to day experience being a veterinarian for stranded marine mammals in Southern California. Tune in to learn about the process of rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing these animals. And stick around to the end of the episode to learn more about Dr. Deming's research on a herpesvirus cancer in wild California sea lions.
