At the Zoo - June 2, 2019 / 10:00 am

We’re celebrating World Sea Lion Day at Seneca Park Zoo on Sunday, June 2. Learn all about California sea lions through keeper chats, enrichment and training demonstrations, BioFacts, crafts, and more. Hear directly from animal care staff about what it’s like to care for the Zoo’s four sea lions – Lily, Bob, Daley and Mary Lou!

Interactive stations will demonstrate a sea lion’s adaptations, the differences between a sea lion and a seal, and the simple ways you can help protect this species, including cleaning up your local waterways and avoiding single-use plastics.

For a donation to sea lion conservation, enter multiple drawings with a chance at winning:

  • An exclusive sea lion keeper experience
  • A custom sea lion painting
  • Two Monroe County Parks Family Packs
  • Metal straws to help you live more sustainably

This event is FREE with Zoo admission.
