SeaWorld Rescue Team Helps Disentangle Young Humpback Whale

The SeaWorld Rescue Team recently came to the aid of a young humpback whale entangled in fishing gear off the coast of San Diego. The humpback whale was laboring as it tried to swim under the strain of the fishing gear wrapped around its tail flukes. For this young whale, it was a life-threatening situation. The SeaWorld Rescue Team, assisted by several other agencies, was able to give the whale a second chance at life. Watch the video below. (NOAA MMHSRP Permit #18786)

Guess Who I Got to See Up Close – Killer Whales!

Sea lions are my favorite marine animals but my next favorite are whales. SeaWorld has taught me a lot about killer whales. Sometimes I get to talk to the trainers and hear all about how they take care of the whales. They spend a lot of time observing them and learn lots every day.

Rady Children's Patients Take a DIP with Dolphins

SeaWorld San Diego has been hosting patients from Rady Children’s Hospital for a Dolphin Interaction Program (DIP) for seven years, as part of a program started by dolphin trainer Joy, who battled and overcame non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Joy, who herself underwent chemotherapy at a Children’s Hospital in Southern California, vowed that if she made it through her ordeal, she would offer dolphin interactions as a welcome distraction to children going through similar struggles.

You Need to Check Out Dolphin Days at SeaWorld San Diego

Dolphins are so neat because they are cute and smart. An awesome thing they can do is locate things with echolocation – that means they make a noise and it bounces back to them. Echolocation helps them find their food.

Dophins have fusiform bodies, just like sea lions, to help them swim fast through the water.

Why I Want to Work with Animals When I Grow Up

I want to work with animals when I grow up because it would be the best job ever. Sea lions are my very favorite and I really REALLY want to work with them because they are so funny and cute. The last time I was at SeaWorld San Diego I met a sea lion that could give a salute. I showed him what to do and he just waived at me instead. Isn’t that funny?

Animal Adaptations I Wish I Had

Most marine animals are able to live in and out of water because of their adaptations. Those are all the things that have changed over time to help them survive. It would be really cool if I had some of their adaptations too. Being able to swim fast, breathe under water and even hide would be awesome.
