Wildlife Safari in Oregon is home to more than 500 animals which are seen roaming freely like they do in the wild. Wildlife Safari Oregon is one of the most admired and known safari parks of the United States where the Park is dedicated to the conservation of the wildlife. The caretakers of the Park make sure that the safari park has been kept as natural as possible for the animals. Unlike the other parks where petting of the animals is common, the animals in this park are not declawed so that the animals are at their natural behavior and instinct. The cheetah breeding program held in the park is known internationally.

Any one passing through the Highway 101 would definitely notice the sea lion cave which is located at the western side of the highway. The cave is around 11 miles further from Florence Oregon or 38 miles on the southern side of Newport.

Sea Lion Caves Oregon History

It is estimated that it must have taken around 25 million years for the formation of this cave. On a calm day, a local sea man, Captain William Coz entered the grotto through the western channel and discovered the Sea lion Cave. There was a day during his frequent visits to the cave that he got stuck inside for several days due to stormy weather. He survived on the meat of the flipper of a young sea lion. Later he purchased the land from the State of Oregon in the year 1887. Till 1926 when he and his heirs owned the property, there were no road links to the area.

Later in 1927 R. E. Clanton acquired the land and his intention was to open a business there. When the Highway 101 was planned along that route, in 1930, J. E. Jacobson and J. G. Houghton decided to join Clanton as partners and the three of them had a task of building a safe access to the caves. They risked everything they had to do so and were finally successful in building a safe access to the cave for the visitors. In August 1932, the Sea Lion Caves were open to the public.

The Sea Lion Caves were a great attraction for the people all over and it went well till the World War 2 broke out in 1942. Meanwhile Clanton withdrew from the partnership and since then the other two families and their successions mange the caves as a private responsibility.
