Seals for the Wild

Seals for the Wild

*Please note, on Thursday 7 December the 11am Seals for the Wild Presentation will be cancelled. A Keeper talk will be available at 11am at Seal Bay as an alternative. The 2pm presentation will go ahead as scheduled. 

Seals for the Wild Presentation: Watch the graceful seals in our care catch fish, climb and dive in this dynamic display. You’ll see species such as the Australian sea lion, Californian sea lion, and Long-nosed fur seal show off their natural abilities while you learn about their marine environment.

Seals for the Wild Talk: Join us in an educational talk where you will meet some of the seals in Taronga's care. Deep-dive into learning about their unique adaptations and behaviours, what threats they face in the wild and how we can make better choices to help, as you watch them play, dive and swim.
