SAN FRANCISCO—Tourists visiting the famous hangout of San Francisco Bay’s sea lions now can get some answers to their questions about the blubbery beasts.

Pier 39 has joined with the Bay Institute, the Aquarium of the Bay and the Marine Mammal Center to launch an outreach program that will staff the pier with a naturalist every day to educate visitors. Before this venture kicked off on July 1, volunteers from the mammal center had been available on and off.

Jeff Boehm, the mammal center’s executive director, says visitors’ curiosity makes it an excellent opportunity to pass on information about the sea lions and what can be done to protect their ocean habitat.

The experts are available on the pier from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
