I’ve written about former campers and where they are now, whether it is up at Shamu stadium as a trainer or working with sea lions or in the Florida Keys on a lobster boat, but this story may be the best yet. A few weeks ago, one of SeaWorld San Antonio’s first campers brought her own family back to camp. Julie was a part of our first day camp group in 1992 and part of the first resident camp in 1994.
SeaWorld Orlando team members spent a hot July day with The Nature Conservancy at Mosquito River Lagoon in Merritt Island, Florida. They worked hard to create a quilt of oyster mats in knee deep water designed to re-establish damaged oyster beds.
Did you know that even our feathered family members contribute to conservation? The feathers some of our birds naturally shed, or molt, are donated each month to the Feather Distribution Project. This worthwhile organization redistributes donated plumes to Native American tribes in an effort to prevent the illegal smuggling and plucking of endangered birds.
