Spring break is officially over. And you know what that means?
Fans, take your marks!
Last year, SeaWorld held its first inaugural Pole to Pole Fun Run, promoting the crucial work of the Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute and its positive impact in the polar regions of the globe.
In celebration of Easter, SeaWorld Orlando’s culinary team is offering a few delectable delights.
As an instructor for the education department, I happen to have the most fun job in the world! Working at SeaWorld San Diego has provided me with many fun opportunities to share exciting information about animals. I pretty much get paid to talk to people!
As you may recall, last year I was sort of a Manta expert. With weekly construction updates, regularly touring the site and blogging about this historical addition to SeaWorld San Diego, I felt like I became “Manta girl” in some way. Ironically, after all that hard work and detail leading up to the grand opening of the ride, I had never even gotten the chance to ride the ray or feel the rush! You see, most of last year I was pregnant, so roller coasters were off limits for me.
Ra whanau is how the Maori, people native to the island of New Zealand, say Happy Birthday!
On any given day as a Wild Arctic keeper, we have the opportunity to work with a diverse group of species, ranging from our smallest animal, the arctic fox (weighing in at approximately 10 lbs), to coming face to face with the largest animal at Wild Arctic (and second largest at SeaWorld San Diego) Obie, our adult male Pacific walrus, weighing in at a whopping 3,400 lbs! That’s right -- he is a big boy. But in walrus terms, Obie is a medium-sized male walrus, as male walruses can weigh as much as 5,000 lbs. SeaWorld San Diego is also home to adult female walrus named Seahook.
Thank you to everyone who supported and participated in the 4th Annual Special Olympics Florida Polar Plunge at Aquatica.

With their generosity a total of $205, 241 was raised.
