Chris’ Field Notes
This past August, my 14-year-old daughter Claire asked if we could enter an essay contest that Quark Expeditions and SeaWorld were sponsoring.

For young women looking to get into the field of veterinary science or marine biology, Dr. Lara Croft is an inspiration. Here's a little bit of informaiton on her background and some great photos of her doing some amazing work at SeaWorld.
Dr. Croft is one of three SeaWorld Orlando staff veterinarians. In this capacity, Dr. Croft maintains the health of the park's animals, including killer whales, dolphins, sea lions, seals, birds, fish, and turtles.
And Then There Were Three . . . . More!
SeaWorld San Diego, already home to more than 250 amazing penguins, has three more birds in its family. These Magellanic penguins hatched a little more than a month ago and are doing great in the Penguin Encounter's behind-the-scenes nursery.
The SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Conservation Fund participated in the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey release of an American Bald eagle yesterday. This was the 396th rehabilitated bald eagle the Center has released since its inception in 1979.
SeaWorld is providing critical care for a sandhill crane suffering from a neck injury caused by a blowgun dart. Aviculturists rescued the bird on March 16 from a neighborhood in Lake Helen, Fla. after receiving a call from a local resident.
