SeaWorld Cares for More than Just Marine Animals

SeaWorld Cares for More than Just Marine Animals

Some friends think only marine animals live at SeaWorld but I’ve learned so much about other types of animals there too. Many different birds, land mammals, reptiles and amphibians live at SeaWorld.

The flamingos at SeaWorld San Diego and Aquatica do not spend most of their time in the water but they spend some of the day hanging out with friends in the water. They build nests on land and teach their chicks how to take care of themselves.

Buff-Crested Bustard Hatches at SeaWorld Orlando

Buff-Crested Bustard Hatches at SeaWorld Orlando

Cute Alert! Our SeaWorld Orlando Aviculture Team welcomed a buff-crested bustard hatchling on Feb. 26. The bird weighed 20 grams upon hatching and was placed in a warm brooder. This species is native to Eastern Africa, where it mainly feeds on a variety of insects and plant materials. To avoid the chick imprinting on its keepers, a small mirror was placed inside the brooder so the chick is able to see a reflection of its own image.

She was outfitted with a satellite transmitter by Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute scientists who hope to gain crucial data about where the threatened species travels, spends time foraging for food, and ultimately thrives in the ocean.

SeaWorld San Diego Sets New Record for Number of Marine Mammals Rescued

SeaWorld San Diego’s Rescue Team sets a new record today in terms of the number of marine mammals rescued in a single year. Less than three months into 2015, this year already goes down in our park's 51-year history as the highest number of rescued marine mammals. As of today, we've rescued a total of 475 marine mammals since Jan. 1 (breaking down into 458 California sea lions, 11 harbor seals, five elephant seals and one fur seal). That number surpasses the previous record, set for the entire year in 1983, of 474 marine mammals rescued.

I Watch "Sea Rescue," Do You?

I Watch "Sea Rescue," Do You?

So many animals in the ocean end up hurt and need help. The SeaWorld Rescue team gets called to help marine animals. They can help all different kinds of animals like sea lions, turtles, manatees, dolphins and more.

When I go to SeaWorld San Diego I learn about how the animals are getting a second chance at life. Sea lions are my favorite animals and this year the SeaWorld Rescue team is helping to save a lot of them. Sometimes they get tangled in fishing line or eat hooks and I even met a sea lion that needed help because he ate rocks.
