Sea Lion Cove



Sea Lion Cove is a favorite among our visitors. The exhibit features a 160,000 gallon salt water pool, two islands and tiered seating for visitors while they watch feeding demonstrations. On rainy days, visitors can stay dry as they observe the Buffalo Zoo’s California sea lions swimming past large underwater viewing windows. Sea Lion Cove is located near the Zoo’s main entry plaza, between Otter Creek and Kookaburra Korner.
