SeaWorld Wild Days Promotes Wildlife Conservation
SeaWorld Wild Days, an all-new event is happening weekends in March 2015. I was especially excited to go when I heard about some of the incredible Animal Ambassadors that were scheduled to be part of the event, including Julie Scardina and TV personality Jack Hanna. I grabbed our passes and took our daughter and youngest son to the park the first day of the event to check it out.
~Up-Close Animal Connections~
Some of the neat things that are part of SeaWorld Wild Days include up-close animal connections. Our daughter’s love of penguins began at SeaWorld when she was just two years old, so when we saw an animal connection opportunity with a Magellanic Penguin, we were both super excited! Other animal connections happening the day that we visited included cheetahs visiting from the Columbus Zoo, and a variety of animals from the Animal Connections area of the park.
~Shows Inside Mission Bay Theater~
Special shows are happening inside Mission Bay Theater during SeaWorld Wild Days, including presentations by leading animal experts. There are different themes, varying on the weekends, and assorted people leading the shows (check the lineup below). We saw a presentation by Animal Ambassador Julie Scardina, which was awesome! It included a handful of different animals including a lemur, porcupine, cheetahs, an owl, and more!
~Conservation Tips and Activities~
SeaWorld Wild Days includes an area with lots of booths set up to help families learn about conservation in a fun atmosphere. Generation Nature™, Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute, the SeaWorld Busch Gardens Conservation Fund, and others are represented. Assorted booths include conservation tips, activities and more. SeaWorld trainers and veterinarians can also be found in this area answering questions from guests, as well as giving a variety of presentations throughout the afternoon. We came late in the day and didn’t get to spend a lot of time in this area so we look forward to heading back there on our next visit.
