SAN DIEGO — SeaWorld San Diego released Friday the last three sea lions affected by the oil spill near Santa Barbara.

The sea lions were brought to Border Field State Park for the release. One was tagged with a satellite transmitter to allow scientists to monitor its movements in the wild.

The sea lions were joined by four other lions that were brought in from San Diego-area beaches.
