"Off" Season...Not So Different From "On" Season

One of the questions I get the most is, “What do you do when the park is closed?”  Well, we are here taking care of the animals 365 days a year, so the park being closed doesn’t change our work schedule very much.  We simply have more time to train new behaviors, train new people, and strengthen our relationships with the animals.  For example, today, while the park is closed, we are busy working on several behaviors for the upcoming Jack Hanna show.

A Home for the Hornbills

Deforestation has affected our world in many ways. Most of us are now aware of its role in global warming and how it affects our world as a whole – but few think about its impact on even the smallest of creatures.

A Message on the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill: From Veterinarian Dr. Chris Dold

As the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico threatens to become one of the worst environmental disasters in U.S. history, a team of federal and NGO (non-governmental organizations) veterinarians and animal rehabilitation experts have formed an Incident Command Center to respond to Oiled Wildlife Events.

SeaWorld and Busch Gardens remain in close contact with these officials and they are aware of our willingness to assist. At this time, they have not decided how we can best assist the effort.
