Sealion Splash Live!

The sealions at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo can be seen in the amazing Sealion Splash Live! 

Sealion Splash Live! takes place three times a day at 12pm, 2pm and 4pm.

Dom, Bailey, and Lara will be demonstrating their aquatic skills and balancing prowess in their newly revamped pool, giving visitors a unique chance to see them up close and learn more about them as they demonstrate their natural behaviours.

Senior keeper Alex Pinnell said: “The sealions are back into the swing of things after their relaxing holiday at ZSL London Zoo while their pool was refurbished. Training has been going really well and we can’t wait to get started. Sealion Splash Live! is really good opportunity for visitors to get up close to the sealions and learn more about them and we’ve been working hard to make sure the shows are the best they can be. They’re livelier and there’s a good chance of getting soaked if you stand too near to the front!”
