At lunchtime on Monday 8th June 2020, in the middle of the Coronavirus lockdown we presented the Sea Lion Show live and direct from Flamingo Land Resort in North Yorkshire. This exclusive show was streamed directly to our Facebook Page in conjunction with ‘The Bird and Sea Lion Show‘ a small company that produces the shows at the popular North Yorkshire Attraction.
Live and Exclusive Sealion Show

Bringing Joy into Peoples Lives
Here at Attractions Near Me, our number one objective is to help people have fun. Sadly when the coronavirus struck everything was affected including Theme Parks and Attractions, a place where families would normally go to escape everyday life. When the lockdown began it quickly became apparent that it was more important than ever that we looked for ways to help bring joy and the opportunity to socially connect back into peoples lives.
Zoos Appeal for Help
Not only were people affected by this horrible pandemic but businesses were too, some more so than others. It was clear that one of the most badly affected businesses were Zoo’s which not only had to worry about the welfare of their staff, but also the welfare of their animals. As the lockdown period increased major appeals were launched by some of the UK’s largest and most established Zoos including Chester Zoo who had launched a nationwide campaign to ‘Save our zoo’, after admitting it was desperately worried about its future. With this in mind, we decided that as well as putting a smile on peoples faces we also wanted to help support a Zoo or Animal Attraction.
The Bird and Sea Lion Show
With our interest in Theme Parks and Attractions, we came across a Facebook page for ‘The Bird and Sea Lion Show‘ at Flamingo Land Resort. It is not common knowledge that they are a small company that operates the bird and sea lion shows within Flamingo Land Resort. Sadly, they were starting to find the costs with no income coming in almost impossible to cover. Flamingo Land Resort is our local park and we have been watching both the Bird and Sea Lion shows since we were children and like many other families, we now take our own children to watch the shows.
We helped support the ‘The Bird and Sea Lion Show‘ and in return, they presented a live Sea Lion Show bringing joy and entertainment to families and their children across the UK.
A long term Partnership
Following on from our initial Live Show we have maintained our partnership with ‘The Bird and Sea Lion Show‘ and the animals who are involved in the shows make regular appearances on our Facebook Page. Following the success of our first-ever live event, we are planning on there being further live shows with further emphasis placed on education and conservation.
Like our Facebook Page to stay informed. We will continue to support the The Bird and Sea Lion Show Facebook Page and hopefully partner with them for many years to come. They are a fantastic organisation and do amazing work with the animals. If you would like to know more about this great cause be sure to visit their The Bird and Sea Lion Show Facebook Page.

Show your Support
It is not a well known fact that it is a small company within Flamingo land that runs and hosts the bird and sealion shows. In the current climate, they have reduced costs significantly where they can but as the zoo is likely to not open until July or potentially later?! Sadly they are now starting to find the costs with no income coming in almost impossible to cover. At the moment their large costs are food, medication for the animals and employees following government guidelines (they are functioning on the minimum amount of staff they can each day).
Holly and the team are looking for any form of donation to help them get through this challenging period to help them cover their costs and continue their care for the animals. As a company, they want to work for the money you may be able to provide to support them. In return, they will provide unusual and quirky services involving the animals and staff that the park has never been able to offer before and also some of the usual services you may be familiar with!
If you are thinking that you can’t, unfortunately, provide any way of helping them cover such costs then even fruit and veg donations would work as payment for services and would be greatly appreciated by their 20 greedy parrots!
You can find full details on ‘The Bird and Sea Lion Show Facebook Page‘.
