The SeaWorld Rescue Team and their animal friends are on the road again sharing its rescue mission and teaching students across the U.S. how they can help wildlife. This week the team from SeaWorld Orlando is headed to the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia, after spending last week sharing heartwarming stories with schools in Boston. Meanwhile in Texas, SeaWorld San Antonio is headed to the state capital, Austin, after a great week in Corpus Christi.
The team is sharing rescue stories that include assisting hundreds of oil-impacted turtles, an amazing dolphin rescue, caring for a near-death pilot whale and rescuing hundreds of California seals and sea lions, all just in the past year.
Also during the visits, the teams are providing tips for the kids to share with their families on how together they can make a difference in the lives of animals through ordinary, everyday actions such as conserving water, picking up litter, properly disposing of fishing line and other trash and participating in local cleanups.
Upcoming stops on the tour include: New York, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Sacramento and Los Angeles.
SeaWorld's animal rescue team is on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to save injured, abandoned and orphaned animals, including manatees, dolphins, whales, birds and turtles. Over the past four decades, the parks have rescued more than 18,000 orphaned, injured or ill animals.
