Seal and Sea Lion Junior Trainers

Today was our last official adventure of the summer, and it was worth the wait. We spent all morning at Seal and Sea Lion Junior Training Camp where we learned how to train these amazing animals. We talked about how animals adapt to different environments, which included using pet rats which Lily loved! We also talked about and handled (or looked at if you're me) the fish the seals and sea lions eat which was definitely my least favorite part. Back by the pool we were ready to go, and with our clickers and targets in tow we had the animals clapping, jumping, waving, talking, and doing hand stands. We were so good by the end that we got to participate in the noon seal show for an audience of people, and it is now official, we are Junior Trainers!
