Sea lion research station scrambles as funding dries up

UBC’s open water research centre could be shut down after it lost its funding from the U.S. government, CBC reported.

UBC Marine Mammal Research Unit director Andrew Trites said he doesn’t believe this is the end of the centre.

“I’m still optimistic that this isn’t the end, and I think everybody who comes to see it is just so amazed about something they never thought was possible,” he said.
