The DANiNJECT JMST11 CO2 projector is used as a vital part of Vancouver Aquarium Seal Lion Entanglement Program. Sea lions entangled in plastic are identified and immobilized to remove the different materials in which they have been entangled. Plastic packing straps are the most common material they encounter.
