About the Sea Lion Exhibit

Make a splash as you enter the Zoo by visiting our sea lions! Join Jonah, Rockie, Cali, and Kamia as they swim around and enjoy their newly renovated pool. Be sure to check the schedule to see when there’s a sea lion show – you won’t want to miss it! The sea lion staff have been taking on new challenges by participating in research projects. Currently, the sea lions are learning to distinguish from four objects using the reflection of a mirror!
