Columbus Zoo welcomes 10 sea lions, 4 harbour seals to facility


POWELL, Ohio (WJW) — The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is welcoming new additions to its Adventure Cove.

According to the zoo, ten California sea lions and four harbor seals arrived at the zoo last Sunday. They traveled to the facility from Florida.

Currently, the animals are settling in well in a behind-the-scenes area of the facility,. This will allow them to begin exploring their new surroundings as the zoo completes its final installation phases of the new Adventure Cove region.

The Adventure Cove region will feature a Pacific Northwest inspired rocky coast and harbor setting for the sea lions and seals.

While a specific date has not been set, Adventure Cove is on target to open in summer 2020. 

Meanwhile, the Columbus Zoo remains closed to the public to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
