Dome TheaterSea Lions – Life by a Whisker

Between a jagged cliff face and a roaring ocean lives one of the rarest marine mammals on the planet, the Australian Sea Lion, and one very special pup named Otto. Curious, intelligent, and playful…this family of whiskers needs our help.

A heart-warming journey of a sea lion pup, and the man that has dedicated his life trying to save her species. Embark on an epic quest through the uninhabited wilderness of the Great Australian Bight, to the lush kelp forests off the Californian coast.

Encounter giant humpback whales, cunning cuttlefish, great white sharks, and one Marine Park Ranger on a mission to find out what it takes to save a species.

"Sea Lions is such a sweet story and a great message about the importance of sharing and safeguarding the ocean. I loved that it was family-friendly and enjoyed the beautiful bond between the baby sea lion and her mother. It was 'Cuteness Overload'! "

"Absolutely beautiful with some truly stunning shots and great expansive use of the varied location that is both beautiful and unforgiving... The sea lions are as stunning and as varied as the photography and found what is said about them illuminating."
