Dive into the world of the charismatic California sea lion at Truist Pier 225! Learn, laugh and fall in love with the sea lions that call Georgia Aquarium home during our Under the Boardwalk presentation. During your time at Pier 225, you’ll be transported to the coast of California for an up-close look at this incredible species. Trainers interact with these social pinnipeds while educating guests on the dangers they face in their natural environment, as well as key environmental factors that impact them.
Did You Know?
In March of 2015, an unusually high number of sea lion pups were stranded on California beaches during an Unusual Mortality Event (UME), a sad phenomenon reaching a record-breaking high. Georgia Aquarium made a home for two pups from this UME, rescued by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that were deemed non-releasable. These two pups were named Jupiter and Neptune by Georgia Aquarium’s fans, and they serve as sea lion ambassadors to educate the public about the species’ challenges. Jupiter and Neptune joined four other rescued sea lions in Truist Pier 225.
