Bumper is one of the youngest members of the Oceans of Fun family! He is a 3 year old, juvenile male Atlantic harbor seal. Bumper was born at the Long Island Aquarium in New York where he shared his pool with 4 other harbor seals and a rescued grey seal. In New York, Bumper was on exhibit where he played with his pool mates and began his formal training when he was a few months old.
Over the past year, Bumper has adjusted well to his new home filled with seals, sea lions, educational shows and interactive programs. This youngster has begun working with guests to help teach about marine mammals and animal training. He has learned new husbandry behaviors to assist in his own health care and also fun, high energy behaviors such as a ball touch to delight visitors of Oceans of Fun. Bumper is cute, cuddly, and always looking for new adventures. We are all very excited to watch Bumper learn, grow and build relationships with his new family at Oceans of Fun!
