LIVE SEA LION WEBCAM AT PIER 39
Advice was sought from the Marine Mammal Center, an organization devoted to the rescue and rehabilitation of marine mammals. After much debate and research, the experts from The Marine Mammal Center recommended that the sea lions were allowed to stay in their new home.
The number of sea lions fluctuates based on migratory patterns and prey movements but at one point there were over a thousand sea lions chilling on the docks. Today, the sea lions are present at Pier 39 from late summer (late July) to late spring (mid May) and there are typically 150 to over 600 hauled out.
Sea lions migrate to areas across the Paciﬁc Coast, from Vancouver to the southern tip of Baja. Most pups are born on the Channel Islands located off Southern California in June.
The Sea Lion Center, operated and managed by Aquarium of the Bay, is a hub for all things sea lion, including interactive displays, educational videos and many fascinating presentations led by Aquarium of the Bay Naturalists.
