Meet One of the Many Rescued Marine Mammals Living at the Zoo: Ray

When animals cannot survive in their natural habitat, zoos and aquariums play a major role in providing these critters with safe, permanent homes. Rescued animals are wonderful ambassadors, educating the public about the challenges their species face in the wild, and the opportunity to watch these individuals grow and thrive is immensely rewarding, both for their caregivers and the whole community.

Here at the Indianapolis Zoo, we’re proud to provide a permanent home to many rescued animals, including a large group of marine mammals. As an accredited aquarium as well as a zoo, our highly skilled and extensively trained staff has many years of combined experience working with rescued aquatic animals.

One of those animals is Ray, our male California sea lion. Ray was discovered stranded on two separate occasions following multiple gunshot attacks, the last of which left him significant injuries to his mouth and right eye. With his limited vision, rescuers ultimately determined that he couldn’t be returned to the wild.

After coming to the Zoo in August 2012, Ray adjusted quickly to life in our sea lion exhibit. And while he eventually lost the sight in his left eye as well, Ray had already learned all the twists and turns of our fixed environment, which means he’s still able to maneuver through the exhibit confidently.
