    Im sure they're tracking them.. they will likely pop up in some other city where there is a greater food supply.

    I saw one news report where a commentator claimed, after talking about how they would sometimes sun themselves on people's boats, that the sea lions were "damaging to the environment." Of course I know she meant the boats and maybe the pier itself, but come on, as human beings can we really say ANY other animal is "damaging to the environment" with a straight face?


    Hopefully they found a better spot to call home.

    Honestly, it's fine that they're gone. There's way too much going on on that pier, there's probably a better place for them to go where they won't be stared at at all hours of the day.

    Plus it might smell better there.

    Maybe.

    Sure we can, with invasive species being the most notable example.

    Although of course basically all invasive species are "aliens" introduced into foreign ecosystems by humans.

    ..and whether a plant in its native habitat under control of its natural predators and pathogens can be truly invasive by definition even with human intervention isn't really clear.

    Sure, they are damaging, and other animals are as well (I know elephants uproot trees and stuff in their own native environment as one example). My point was more about scale. It's hard to be concerned about the relatively minor impact of different animals when we do what we do. I won't go on an environmental rant, but it just sounds silly to call whatever damage they did "damaging to the environment". It's technically correct, but on such a different scale that it feels like it needs different phrasing to be taken seriously. That would be like McDonald's calling a health food store out for promoting an unhealthy lifestyle.
