Swim with sea lions
Each session begins with an educational workshop by the caregivers of the sea lions and explain some peculiarities of this species. You will learn the characteristics of its species, its habitat, feeding habits, longevity, conservation, reproduction …
Then it’s time to get in touch with them in the water. Sea lions are some funny, playful and intelligent animals, acrobats and a real surprise with their antics.
What is the purpose of the meeting with Sea Lions?
The main purpose is to have an approach to these animals to educate, inform and sensitize participants to the importance of preserving the natural and marine environment.
Some interesting facts about sea lions: these mammals resemble seals, but unlike them their puppies grow very slowly and remain with the mother for several months to in some cases over two years . Males are larger and have long hair on their head while females at first glance resemble seals. However we can easily identify as the seals do not have ears and sea lions do. Recent studies demonstrate that its zoo relationship (no external appearance) is very close to lions, bears and other carnivores. Sea lions typically have an average age of 25 years and males can grow to 2.8m and weigh up to 300 kg.
