The Steller's sea lions that populate the Alaskan coastline are powerful, playful, and sometimes rowdy creatures who bump and jostle each other on land but acquire a sublime gracefulness in the water. They are also the subject of a strange and tragic mystery: Steller's sea lions are rapidly disappearing from one of the last great wildlife strongholds of the world, and no one knows why. Naturalist filmmaker Shane Moore, who has been working in the Alaskan wilderness for much of the past 10 years, brings a sense of urgency and new understanding to this puzzle in A MYSTERY IN ALASKA, airing on Thirteen/WNET New York's NATURE series, Sunday, July 1 at 8 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check local listings).
