A Flock of Caribbean Flamingo Chicks Hatch at SeaWorld Orlando

by Staff

Our SeaWorld Aviculture Team has their hands full caring for a flock of recently hatched flamingos. Caring for them is a round-the-clock job – some chicks even travel home with aviculturists for close monitoring and routine feedings. To make sure they receive all the nutrients they need to grow into healthy adult flamingos, each chick’s keeper hand feeds them a special formula, called a flamingo smoothie, made of egg yolks, whole eggs, corn oil, vitamin E, calcium carbonate and water. Check it out in the video below:

Dive Into Crafts: Aquatica-Themed Flamingo Handprints

I can’t believe it is craft time already, but here we are. It’s no doubt you’ve seen some of our amazing blog posts about the upcoming and highly-anticipated opening of Aquatica SeaWorld’s Waterpark here in sunny San Diego. Since I’m looking forward to Aquatica almost more than anyone else I know, I thought this month’s craft should be dedicated to one of the animals that will be featured there… CARIBBEAN FLAMINGOS! And because I fully believe in making a mess, this one involves paint all over your hand. So, let’s get crafting!

One of SeaWorld San Diego’s coolest events is its daily Flamingo Parade. I just spent a few days with Trainer Sarah, who works with the park’s Animal Ambassador Team, and she tells me the parade is one of her favorite things to do.

Flamingos on the Move!

When the construction of Manta began last year, our flamingos where moved to a behind-the-scenes enclosure since their exhibit is a part of the new Manta site. Now after a lot of hard work and construction, not only is Manta up and running but their refreshed exhibit is as well. So how exactly do you move more than 200 flamingos from one side of the park to the other? I had to come in early in the morning before the park opened to see for myself.

SeaWorld Thinks Pink "Flamingo"

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the color pink, along with the pink ribbon, are the most prominent symbols of breast cancer awareness. This post is in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we are profiling SeaWorld’s pinkest animal, the flamingo. SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment would like our readers to learn more about early detection and how you can raise awareness of breast cancer. Please take the time and visit the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Keep It Moving…Flamingos on the March!

by Staff

It’s amazing what you can do with a good plan and a good team. Recently, bird keepers at SeaWorld San Diego led a flock of flamingos from their public display at the park to a behind-the-scenes aviary to make way for construction for our 2012 attraction, Manta. Trick is, this was a flock of 166 birds and our keepers had never executed a move quite like this before.

Flamingo Flock on a Walk

by Staff

Every day, guests at SeaWorld Orlando can see a flock of flamingos taking a morning stroll with the park's aviculture team. These birds of a feather walk together to stretch their long legs and interact with park guests.

Guests can see more than 210 Chilean and American flamingos at the adventure park. This new animal interaction is just one of many ways SeaWorld guests can get up-close to their favorite furry and feathered friends.
