Earlier this year we launched “SeaWorld’s Happy Tails” to encourage adoptions of homeless dogs and cats from local animal shelters. The program thanks pet lovers in our hometown markets with two free single-day admissions to SeaWorld when they adopt a dog or cat from participating shelters.
Summer isn’t officially over in Central Florida, but with school back in session there’s no denying fall is just around the corner. Here at SeaWorld Orlando we are particularly excited because fall means it’s time for one of our most exciting and fun-filled events– SeaWorld Orlando’s Halloween Spooktacular!
Orlando is known as the theme park capital of the world. It’s also known for record-breaking temperatures during the summer. Where might you ask is the best place to cool off? Well, I was on a mission to find out! While on the hunt for the top spot to beat the heat, I visited two locations – the Splash Zone at SeaWorld Orlando’s Shamu Stadium and Walkabout Waters at Aquatica, SeaWorld’s waterpark.
A Pacific harbor seal recently rescued by SeaWorld underwent cataract removal surgery at Eye Care for Animals in Tustin, Calif. SeaWorld veterinarians and animal rescue team hope the surgery will restore her eyesight enough so that she can forage for food on her own and eventually be returned to the wild.
Almost always after I tell someone that I am an animal trainer they will always ask me, “How did you get a job like?” My answer is I did my homework.
This afternoon at SeaWorld Orlando’s Shamu Stadium, a heartwarming reunion took place right before the start of the One Ocean show. After a year of active duty in Afghanistan, Army Specialist Eric Espinosa reunited with his four-year-old daughter, Alexis.
Conservation Never Got So Fun
As a park with a passion for animals large and small, SeaWorld is able to combine education and entertainment in a way that connects people to the natural world around us like nowhere else. But don’t just take our word for it! Check out this letter that one of our young guests wrote after an amazing trip with his family to SeaWorld Orlando.
It’s summer time at SeaWorld San Diego! Our Sleepover campers and counselors are heating things up with a little pre-show entertainment at “Shamu Rocks.” Any time we have a Sleepover during the summer, you will always find our counselors entertaining our Sleepover guests with a little something we call “The Counselor Dance.”
SeaWorld San Diego celebrated National Zoo Keeper Week with an interactive display at the park’s new Rescue Plaza near Shamu Stadium. Park guests had the chance to chat with keepers from the bird and mammal departments, dress up like a zoo keeper, and learn about what SeaWorld does to care for animals, both in the park’s collection and as part of the rescue program.
