Our three sea lions, Lola (17), Poppy (17) and baby of the family Oscar (5), love showing off to visitors, but this year they’re taking a holiday from the Safari Park so that work can start on a brand-new sea lion pool, which will be ready for them in the autumn.
This beautiful new home will have rocks, ledges and a large outdoor pool, giving plenty of space for our playful trio to climb, slide, swim and sunbathe. The new layout also means better viewing opportunities, so visitors can enjoy all the antics.
Whilst the work is being done, the sea lions have been moved off-site where they are being looked after by their keepers. We expect work to be complete by mid-October and we can’t wait to welcome our flippered friends back to their new home. We’ll keep everyone updated as the project continues.
