Australian Sea Lion - Portia

Relocated to SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast from Adelaide in 1991, Portia is one of our most experienced residents. Although she's one of our more mature seals she loves to play, with tug-of-war being one of her favourite games. Portia is a much loved ambassador for her species, and loves to take part in presentations. She has been helping educate guests about the plight of the endangered Australian Sea Lions for over 20 years.


Portia was born in 1989 and is the oldest Australian Sea Lion that we currently know of!
