Marco (born 1982)

Marco is our oldest animal and has long surpassed the average life expectancy of a harbour seal. Originally from the Stuttgarter Wilhelma he first went to the Dolphinarium Harderwijk, Netherlands before finally coming to us. For a number of years Marco suffered from a bilateral cataract until his surgery in 2009. Visually heavily impaired Marco has successfully worked in other areas such as acoustics and haptics. As a crowd favourite, Marco regularly charms our visitors.
