New Sea Lions Arrive
Sea Lions Logo
There was great excitement at the Sanctuary on Thursday, with the arrival of our two new sea lions all the way from Costa Blanca.

Their names are Noito and Diego.

The sea lions arrived just after 6pm and they were very keen to get out of the van and explore their new home.

Once in the annex area, we took the gate down so they could both meet Rocky and Boadicea. Boadi was happy to see two more Patagonian sea lions and there was lots of kisses exchanged between them.

Both hungry from the journey next was feeding time, but both a little reluctant to get into the water, in the end one pushed the other in the water.

Both are fascinated by the underwater viewing, and cannot understand why there are people in their pool.
There will be an official welcome for the sea lions on Thursday 2nd April 2009.
