Seaworld is not just for fun and entertainment. This theme park is helping stranded and hurt animals. Here are some ways Seaworld recently made an impact in an animal’s life.
A team of volunteers was able to save a loggerhead turtle that was stranded. The turtle had a dangerous body temperature level when they found it on the Oregon coast. The turtle went to Sea World San Diego, where they cared for her until she was healthy enough to be released back into the ocean. SeaWorld has helped stranded turtles and turtles with other life-threatening situations for over a decade. Sea World has rescued over 2,000 turtles.
Turtles are not the only animals that Sea World rescues and rehabilitates. Five manatees were recently released back into their natural environment because of Sea World rehabilitation services. Two of the manatees were calves that had to be cared for until they were large enough to be released into the wild. The other three manatees were experiencing cold stress at the time of their rescue.
Sea World Orlando is known as one of the best manatee rehabilitation facilities available. This facility also collaborates with several agencies to deliver optimal care to manatees. Some of the agencies they collaborate with are the U.S. Department of the Interior and the National Marine Fisheries Service.
Sea World has rehabilitated over 600 manatees and released them back into the wild. They have also rescued over 38,000 different marine animals. Sea World also raises millions of dollars to fund rescue projects around the world.
Sea World is a theme park doing its part to help and protect animals around the world. The next time you go to Sea World Orlando with friends or family, consider participating in the park’s new Manatee Rehabilitation tour. It will make your trip educational and more memorable.
