Happy 30th Birthday Slick!
This May we are celebrating a very special sea lion – SLICK! May 30, 2016 marks Slick’s golden birthday, and this amazing sea lion deserves the celebration of a life time! Slick joined our Oceans of Fun family when he was just 6 years old. Sea lions in the wild are currently living 8-12 years; however, proactive medical care and exceptional daily welfare practices have allowed us to triple that lifespan and celebrate 30 wonderful years with Slick!
Over the years, we have been captivated by the special relationships that Slick shares with not only his trainers, but his adoring fans as well. Slick has been an integral part of our Milwaukee family. He has helped aspiring trainers to understand positive reinforcement training, inspired countless guests about marine mammal care and conservation, and reached people in ways that only a special animal can. Because of Slick, thousands of people have been inspired to care more about our oceans and to strive to make a difference every day for the world in which we live. As an ambassador for his species, Slick’s role at Oceans of Fun is invaluable, and we could not be more thankful to have the pleasure of celebrating Slick’s big day! Join us on May 30th and the rest of this year as we show Slick just how much he means to all of us!
