What Does Your Favorite Beach Look Like After a Busy Holiday?

Earlier this month, on the Fourth of July, I was lucky enough to enjoy a day with friends, and about 10,000 other people on Mission Bay’s Crown Point Park in San Diego. In between crowds of people with their tents, tables and chairs, were large cardboard boxes meant for people to dump their trash. During the day, people seemed to be taking care of the park by filling up their individual trash bags as well as filling up the oversized trashcans placed around the park.

Taking Care of Sea Otters

Sea otters are really cute and fun to watch. When I go to SeaWorld I like to visit the exhibit to watch them swim and play. They are really funny when they splash and play with their favorite toys. Sometimes we’re lucky and get to see the frozen ice treats get delivered. The otters swim up and are excited for their treats.

You Otter Take a Look!

This past October brought some new changes for our resident sea otters! The sea otters of our Otter Outlook exhibit had a mini staycation at one of the pools in our Animal Care Facility while their home was refreshed and given a new look.

The four girls: Clover, Coco, Mocha and Sina were relocated for a few weeks in order to begin modifications to their exhibit. These changes included a major rehabilitation of the exhibit’s back holding pool where daily husbandry, feeding and guest tours occur.

Sea, You Otter Know About This!

Sea otters were once abundant along most of the coastal North Pacific Ocean. In the 18th and 19th centuries, fur traders hunted sea otters for their thick, luxurious pelts. By 1900, sea otters were nearly extinct. Protected from hunting by state law since 1911, and by the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, sea otters have made a comeback in Alaska and, to a lesser extent, in California waters.

Lett-uce Show You a Day in the Life of a Romaine Lettuce

Throughout the world, green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas) mostly eat a variety of sea grasses and algae. At SeaWorld San Diego’s Turtle Reef, we provide these underwater reptiles with nutritious romaine lettuce to substitute for sea grass. Our sea turtles in the attraction can eat through five cases of romaine lettuce a day. That’s more than 125 heads of lettuce in 24 hours!

So, what is it like in the day of a life for a leaf of romaine lettuce at Turtle Reef?

Well it’s short and nutritiously quick, as you’ll see in the clip below!
