Celebrate World Sea Lion Weekend

30 April 2024

Get ready for a weekend filled with fun and fascinating insights into some of our most charming residents! Our Sea Lion Weekend is just around the corner, happening on the 4th, 5th, and 6th of May at California Cove.

Mark your calendars because we’ll be hosting an event to remember, all in support of our Link to the Wild fundraising initiative, aimed at supporting conservation efforts in the wild.

Our dedicated Sea Lion Team will be there, ready to engage in lively conversations about all things sea lions. Have burning questions about their training demonstrations? They’ve got the answers! Want to learn about their unique behaviours and habitats? They’ll gladly share their wealth of knowledge with you.

But wait, there’s more! Get ready for an interactive touch table experience and fascinating fact sheets that will transport you into the wonderful world of sea lions.  There will also be a selection of fun games and photo opportunities for the whole family to enjoy!

If that isn’t enough to get your flippers flapping, we have something truly extraordinary to offer. Our artistic animal friends have created one-of-a-kind paintings that will be up-for-grabs on the day.  You could be in with a chance of winning these wonderful paintings, small toys or even a sea lion meet-and-greet by taking part in our tombola.

Looking for something a bit more relaxed? Join us for interactive sea lion storytelling sessions in one of our cosy yurts.

Come and celebrate these extraordinary marine mammals with us – we can’t wait to see you there! And if you can’t make it to the park, fret not. Our dedicated sea lion keepers will be taking over our social media channels throughout the three days. If you’d like to contribute to Link to the Wild from the comfort of your home, you can do so here.
