These lovable sea lions are racing towards the ocean to go back home.
The animals were recently rehabilitated at the Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach, California. While at the center, the sea lions underwent procedures and treatments to help them get better.
Now the rescued critters are ready to return to the waters that they know and love. Crowds even gathered to watch them head back to the shore.
The heartwarming moment is not one beachgoers will soon forget. So come on guys, swim on in - the water’s fine!
