Name the Harbor Seal Pup!

On April 29, 2022, the Louisville Zoo celebrated the birth of a female harbor seal pup to mother Tonie. Now, we’re asking you to help us pick a name! Zoo keepers from Glacier Run have narrowed it down to three names for the public to vote on:

Emmy (eh-mee)

Because every day is an exciting new episode in her life.

Grammy (gra-mee)

Help us decide our pup’s new name by voting for your favorite online or at the Zoo, now through Sunday, May 22 at 11:59 p.m.

Guests visiting the Zoo can vote by dropping coins or bills into a naming kiosk located on the Zoo’s front plaza. Voting will also be available online by way of donations made to support a favorite name (credit cards only, $5 minimum). The name with highest amount of donations will be the pup’s new name! All proceeds from the naming contest will support the Zoo’s mission to “better the bond between people and our planet” by providing excellent care for animals, a great experience for visitors, and leadership in conservation education and action.
