Divided into eastern and western regions, the western population is currently listed as endangered. Woody was humanely euthanized Monday following a rapid decline due to age-related complications. In the wild, male Steller sea lions almost never live beyond their teens. While male sea lions typically lose a significant amount of weight in the fall, Woody lost more weight at a faster rate compared to previous years.
Despite attempts by animal care and veterinary staff to reverse this trend, he lost interest in food and stopped participating in regular feeding sessions over the past two weeks, culminating in profound weight loss.
A necropsy is currently being conducted. While female Steller sea lions typically live longer than males, Woody was the last remaining member of this original sea lion cohort.
