    How many sea lions does Adelaide Zoo have? And are there many places that breed them in Australia? I know Melbourne Zoo doesn't want to because they want to be able to take rescued seals and sea lions.

    Adelaide now has the breeding pair plus their female offspring (1.2). Adelaide has been breeding them for many years and used to do it in conjunction with the closed marineland in Glenelg.
