Rescued sea lions released back into wild in Peru

Three rescued sea lions have been released back into the wild off the coast of Peru.

A local environment group let Fiona, Flynn and a reluctant Felix go near Palomina Island as part of a project to reintegrate endangered species back into their natural habitats.

Rising sea temperatures have caused a decline in fish stock leaving many of the creatures with little food.
