Sea Lion Pup NurseryJuly 17, 2017
We’re taking nursery to an all new level with our sea lion pup nursery! Last month we introduced you to a premature sea lion pup that needed extra T.L.C. from our team and since then we’ve added two additional pups to the nursery. Both of these pups were also in need of extra care from our husbandry team after being evaluated by our veterinarians. Missed the Facebook Live broadcast? Click here to watch it.
As you can imagine there is a ton of hands on care. Our team is onsite around the clock providing bottles every 3 hours. The trio currently receives formula that was developed by our veterinarians and nutritionists to mimic sea lion milk. Next step is for our husbandry team to introduce the pups to “fish smoothies” and then whole fish.
Our goal is to reintroduce the trio to Pacific Point Preserve once they are fully weaned off formula and eating fish. Stay tuned as there are more milestones for us to share as these three continue to grow!
