SeaWorld Orlando announced today, on Manatee Appreciation Day, that they were opening their Manatee rehabilitation so guests can see the behind-the-scenes rescue and rehabilitation work SeaWorld does to help save wild manatees.
Here’s more from SeaWorld:
Behind the scenes of SeaWorld is a 5-acre rescue center used for rehabilitating rescued wildlife. While a guided tour of the entire facility has been available for years, with ten percent of the cost donated to helping wildlife, the park has now opened up sections of the manatee rehabilitation area for complimentary viewing to all guests.
Visitors are invited to step behind the scenes and catch a glimpse of SeaWorld’s working manatee rescue and rehabilitation facility to learn more about the plight of these vulnerable animals in the wild. Park guests can see firsthand the top problems today’s manatee populations are facing and learn simple actions to help. In addition to viewing the animals currently undergoing rehabilitation, guests can also see their digital medical charts, interactive exhibits, an underwater viewing camera and videos of the SeaWorld Animal Rescue Team in action.
