Adopt Silent Knight, a California sea lion
Silent Knight’s Story
Named for his regal demeanor, this California sea lion was the victim of an intentional act of human violence. Shot in the face and left for dead, he had at least five buckshot fragments in his head and damage to his mouth and jaw. Our veterinarians provided the critical care he needed to recover from his life-threatening injuries, but his devastating wounds left him blind. Once healthy, he was sent to the San Francisco Zoo where he acts as an educational ambassador, carrying the message to treat all creatures kindly. We hope that Silent Knight’s story of why he came into the Center’s care will highlight the occurrence of these horrific crimes and ultimately inspire people like you to care more about these animals, and inspire greater stewardship of them and their ocean home.
