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.

by Staff

A Risso’s dolphin that was brought to SeaWorld San Diego is being cared for around the clock by our animal care and veterinary team. Estimated to be about a year old, the male dolphin was found stranded on a beach in Long Beach, California and was taken to the Marine Mammal Care Center at Fort MacArthur where he was stabilized before being transported to our park. Without intervention, this animal would not have survived.

My Dolphin Friends

I had so much fun meeting bottlenose dolphins at SeaWorld San Diego. I always watch the dolphins play when I go to the park. It was neat finally meeting the dolphins and learning about them. I felt happy as soon as I saw the dolphins playing with their trainer. I knew they would be happy to see me too.
