Polar Bears 101

I was just a baby when I met my first polar bear. I posed for a picture with Shivers the big polar bear during a visit to SeaWorld San Diego. My mom says I was happy to see him when we first walked into the park.

Exploring the Wild Arctic

I had so much fun on the Wild Arctic Up-Close Tour the last time I was at SeaWorld San Diego. You can see the animals through windows on the other side of the exhibit but on the tour you get to go see the animals from inside. It’s awesome because you get to see how the SeaWorld trainers take care of the animals. You get to learn about beluga whales, polar bears and walruses. Our tour guide let me stand at the front with her and knew a lot about animals.

Celebrate Valentine's Day at SeaWorld San Diego's Wild Arctic

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.

We will be participating in Polar Bears International’s Leadership Camps where we will learn about polar bears, climate change, and how each of us can help make a world of a difference. We will be traveling to Churchill Canada, the polar bear capitol of the world, to join other educators, public relations professionals, and zoo keepers from across the United States and Canada.
