|Sunny - Californian Sea Lion
|Sunny, a Californian Sea Lion, was born at Wuppertal Zoo in Germany on 27th June 2012.
He lived in a large group of sea lions but as he grew up he could no longer stay with his mother and father due to the chance of breeding and competition within the group.
Also Sunny was being bullied by his older sister and the Zoo was wondering what to do, then they heard that the Cornish Seal Sanctuary was looking for a pool partner for André.
So preparation was made for Sunny to have a new home; he arrived at Gweek on 10th April 2014.
