New exhibit opens at Tulsa Zoo

Mar 16, 2012

The Tulsa Zoo dedicates its newest exhibit. The Helmerich Sea Lion Cove was dedicated yesterday and will open to the public tomorrow.

The facility cost just over five million dollars and was financed by several sources including the 2006 third-penny sales tax and community donations.

You can watch the sea lions swim under the water through a plate glass portal. There are also bleachers to watch above ground demonstrations.  The tank holds 100,000 gallons of salt water.
