Greetings my friend. My name is André and I am a California Sea Lion. I used to be housed at Chessington, but my carers were looking to re-home me, so they got in contact with team at the Sanctuary. I arrived at Gweek on Tuesday 5th May 2009.
Noito and Diego, the Patagonian Sea Lions, were very intrigued to see a new sea lion entering their enclosure. Even when I first dipped my flippers into the water, they followed me around the pool, trying to suss out 'the new guy." Luckily all went well and the three of us are the best of friends.
