Diego - Patagonian Sea Lion

DIEGO was born in a marine park in Valencia, Spain on 1st July 2005 and joined the sanctuary family in March 2009.

Diego was a little reluctant to take the plunge into his new pool when he first arrived at the sanctuary, perhaps the water was a little colder then he was used to! Nowadays he has no such worries and will confidently leap from the jump off rock into the pool with his pool partners at playtime. Coming from sunny Spain Diego loves the sun and chooses the rocks on the beach haul out to blissfully bask the afternoon away!

Diego´s favourite playtime activities involve fishy icicles and fish balls.
