    According to some website articles dated around 2008, 3 sea lions moved from Loro Parque to Siam Park and the rest were due to follow. However, the Loro Parque website still says they have a sea lion show and although the sea lions are marked on Siam Park's map (with no picture) there is no other evidence of them on their website.

    Can anyone confirm whether there are any at Siam Park, or did they move them back?

    Siam Park have a group of Sealions but to my understanding Loro Parque also have a group. Love Siam Park, beautiful place (despite the fact it isn't a zoo - beautifully themed with attention to detail).

    As far as I know, Loro Parque used to have a very large group of sea lions, so some of them were sent to Siam Park. Loro Parque still has a big amount of sea lions.
