Operated and managed by Aquarium of the Bay, the Sea Lion Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that offers free interpretive programs to compliment one of San Francisco’s most popular attractions. Over six million annual visitors will be able to learn all about these boisterous animals through exhibits and one-on-one interactions with naturalists. Guests can learn about these charismatic mammals, their history at PIER 39 and ongoing impacts and challenges to their habitat, as well as what they, as visitors, can do to help. The Sea Lion Center includes a classroom and exhibit space located directly above the sea lions regular hangout on PIER 39’s K-Dock.
