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?

NOAA’s Dr. Dawn Noren Conducting Ground-Breaking Killer Whale Milk Study at SeaWorld San Diego

An important study being conducted here at SeaWorld San Diego has the potential to help endangered Southern Resident killer whales in the Pacific Northwest.

Dr. Dawn Noren, a research fishery biologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Northwest Fisheries Science Center, is studying milk and blood serum samples from new mom Kalia, one of the killer whales here at the park. By analyzing these samples, Dr. Noren will assess the dynamics of persistent organic pollutant (POP) transfer from female killer whales to their calves during lactation.

California Sea Lion is SeaWorld San Diego's First Mammal Return of 2013

As I’ve said before, I love SeaWorld San Diego’s mission to return rescued and rehabilitated animals to the wild. And what’s even cooler, I actually stepped in to help our first marine mammal to be returned to the wild this year from our SeaWorld rescue truck on Jan. 11. After three months of medical rehabilitation at the SeaWorld animal care center, a 300-pound adult male California sea lion named Buck being returned to the wild was quite a sight. I’m sure the dozen or so beachgoers who looked on from various viewpoints agreed.
