Now that summer is in full swing, the SeaWorld Education and Conservation Department is busy as ever. Walk through the park, and you’re certain to see our Day Campers in their “buddy lines”, singing cadence songs as they head to their next activity, Career Campers shoveling snow at the Penguin Encounter or helping out during an Azul show, and if you look close, you’ll probably see a few tour guests on their way to another behind the scenes adventure. But did you know that we are just as busy chatting with guests all day long at the pools and habitats as well?
You can always find Education and Conservation team members staffed at least three different places around the park: Dolphin Cove, Rocky Point Preserve and the Animal Connections Conservation Center. Check it out:
So you can see that we love to talk to people and answer questions about the animals at SeaWorld, so come to the pools and try to stump us. Your questions don’t even have to be about the animals at those locations. We know about all of them and love talking about every single one!
Sometimes throughout the day we will also be at the Sharks/Coral Reef or the Penguin Encounter, hosting what we like to call “Random Acts of Education”. If you happen to find us, don’t pass us by, because it's a great opportunity if you have questions about the animals. We love talking about those animals, so don’t be shy, ask us anything!
Another part of our job is to be tour guides for all of the public programs in the park. We have some pretty cool tours. You can touch stingrays and sharks, meet a dolphin, meet a penguin, meet a sea lion, etc… The list goes on and on, and every single one of them is awesome! People always ask what my favorite tour is, and I always struggle to answer it because each one is super cool. Not too long ago we had a post on our Seafari tour, so definitely check that out.
So the next time you’re in the park, come by the pools, and talk to an Education and Conservation team member. We love to meet people and talk to them about anything and everything related to the animals at SeaWorld. We can’t wait to see you guys out in the park!
