  • Description

    Every month, for a few days, the sea-lions in the Copenhagen Zoological Gardens sit around their pool and mope. Sadly they look at their favourite spot, waiting for the keepers to finish their work and let the sea-lions splash about. The cause of their misery is the monthly draining off of the pool and the cleansing operations. It usually takes the keepers a couple of days to complete this work and until they have they are watched hopefully by an audience of long-faced, miserable sea-lions.

    When the first drops of clean water start to flow into the pool the sea-lions dive in, like a thirsty traveller at an oasis. Every trick they know is performed, they jump, dive, turn, roll this way and that, overjoyed at being allowed in again, at long last.
