Fresno Chaffee Zoo’s newest attraction, Sea Lion Cove, opened to the public on Monday, August 27, 2012. Portico designed this new exhibit that brings visitors into a naturalistic setting mimicking the California Central Coast. The exhibit houses sea lions, harbor seals, and brown pelicans. Several viewing areas provide visitors with a memorable experience, including a face-to-face viewing window, an above-water viewing area to overlook the entire pool, a 36-foot long underwater acrylic viewing window, and a shallow water encounter area for VIPs and special tours. See photos of the exhibit here.
