by Staff

Solstice, a distressed female sea turtle rescued after she was found cold-stunned on a Washington beach, arrived at SeaWorld San Diego’s Animal Rescue Center on Feb. 24, to continue her rehabilitation process. Following her rescue, she was initially treated by experts at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. The U.S Fish and Wildlife Service coordinated with the U.S. Coast Guard to airlift Solstice to Southern California in a C-130 Hercules transport aircraft during a training mission.

Spooktacular Turtle and Fish Costumes

I really like going to SeaWorld and am so excited to go to the Halloween Spooktacular this month. I love making crafts with my mom at home so I made my own Halloween costumes. I had so much fun feeding turtles with Mike at SeaWorld San Diego that I decided to make a sea turtle costume. My favorite book at home is “Rainbow Fish” so I also made a fish costume. I just need to decide which costume to wear to SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular.

Paradise Fears (The Band) meets Paradise Fears (the Sea Turtle)!!!

Back in February, we held a Facebook Fan naming contest for a rescued olive ridley sea turtle. In a landslide victory, the turtle was the named “Paradise Fears” for the exciting young rock-pop band from Vermillion, South Dakota. While working in nearby Los Angeles the band dropped by to meet their true namesake sea turtle. They even got to help with the turtle’s check up. The olive ridley turtle is expected to be returned to the wild later this year and we hope the band will be back for the send off!
