Animal Encounters: Learn More

Painting is perfect for sea lion and human enrichment!

During this 30-minute program, you and a California sea lion will create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. You’ll select which colors of non-toxic paints are used, and the marine mammal does the rest. This activity helps provide the sea lion an enriching and stimulating environment. As the sea lion paints, you’ll learn about sea lion enrichment and training along with species biology, the world-class animal care received at Mystic Aquarium, and more. Once the sea lion is finished, the painting is yours to take home!
