Seals & Sea Lions
Learn about the Aquarium’s harbor seals and California sea lions. These marine mammals have adaptations that help them live in cold ocean waters and take long, deep dives in pursuit of food.
In Animal Updates, read about new arrivals at the Aquarium, including a Black-Backed Magpie, Collared Aracari, Laughing Kookaburra, and flamboyant cuttlefish. The Focus on Sustainability column covers the winter rainy season in Southern California and how it creates storm water runoff that carries trash and other pollution from city streets into waterways and eventually into the ocean.
