So here we are, sitting at the sinkhole, a cave down below us. You can see no more than a few feet inside. The cave is in the middle of prime ranch land, with scrub all around. Bugs are humming. Birds are flying around. We see a skunk to our left. We are out in the middle of nature but right inside San Antonio, just off I-35 and 1604. What would a bunch of SeaWorld employees be doing at a cave, at 7:30 p.m., on an average weekday? To see the world’s largest aggregation of mammals, of course!
Animals at SeaWorld San Antonio enjoy painting as an enriching activity, and their artwork helps support the SeaWorld Busch Gardens Conservation Fund. Find out more in this episode of WAVE-TV!
Put on your best black and white outfit! Grab a fish sandwich for lunch! Put a penguin movie in the DVD player, waddle around the house with your hands stuck out from your sides, and make loud, trumpeting sounds! Why? Because today is World Penguin Day, of course!
One of the greatest joys of working at SeaWorld San Antonio is participating in the outreach events that are available to team members. Knowing that actions speak louder than words, I find that reaching out is very rewarding.
SeaWorld San Antonio prides itself on the care given its animal residents. Recently the Association for Zoos and Aquariums officially recognized our park for our animal care standards and the success of our conservation and and education programs.
We’re on the road again! Each year in the early spring, the SeaWorld San Antonio Marketing, Animal Ambassador, and Education Departments travel to several of our neighboring communities to spread the word about what’s new in our park for the upcoming year. While we’re in town, we also takethe opportunity to share our animals and their stories with schools.
Aquatica San Antonio will be coming to SeaWorld in May 2012. Recently, we had the opportunity to take some San Antonio media and Texas bloggers to Aquatica in Orlando, Florida for a familiarization tour. When given the chance to go, I gladly said YES! This was my very first time to see Florida, so to get the chance to finally visit our sister parks was exciting.
We’re gearing up for the 2nd annual Run for the Fund, and all this talk about physical fitness and ability got us thinking about some of the incredible athletic adaptations animals have that help them compete in the everyday “game” of survival. They rely on these adaptations to help them find food, reproduce, move, and communicate with other animals.
