I was fortunate to see Woody in September, swimming with two sleek females in the sunny, outdoor pool.
My family enjoyed watching Seward’s first sea lion grow up from a frisky 5 year old to a massive, magnificent adult. Countless visitors enjoyed his antics and grace, awed by his presence gliding past the habitat viewing window. Scientists gained valuable information about his fascinating species. He served as a excellent ambassador for the marine world. Woody will be missed!
Fortunately, his daughter Ellie and son Forrest, continue his legacy at the Alaska Sealife Center. Admission is free for Alaskans every Wednesday from November 5 thru February 25 from 11-3 pm. Please consider becoming a member to support this worth-while institution.
