Sea lions have attracted flocks of visitors at San Francisco’s PIER 39 ever since they first took over one of the docks in 1989. Now experts are on hand to educate visitors about the marine mammals and how to protect them.

On Thursday, Sausalito’s The Marine Mammal Center began having staff and volunteers on hand every day to answer questions from the estimated 100,000 annual visitors who come to K-Dock, where the California sea lions haul out on the west side of PIER 39. It also opened a small pop-up exhibit about the marine mammals that will become permanent in the spring.
