SAN DIEGO — SeaWorld’s sea lion and otter show, “Sea Lions LIVE,” will be on hiatus for at least two weeks beginning Saturday while trainers assist in rescuing the growing number of stranded sea lion pups, the park announced Friday.

SeaWorld San Diego has rescued more than 400 sea lions this year and is in the process of constructing two temporary pools for the rescued animals.

“While the temporary closure of the sea lion and otter show may be a minor inconvenience to guests, we feel that it is important to ensure we provide the highest level of care necessary to give these stranded sea lions a second chance at life,” SeaWorld said in a statement.
