It’s always a great day at SeaWorld; whether their teams are working on new conservation efforts, or the parks are simply opening back up to the public. The masses are excited to learn what’s new with the famous theme park! During these unsure times, SeaWorld has been very sure about marching forward with the conservation of Florida’s coral reefs. According to Seaworldentertainment.com, teams have been working with the Florida Coral Rescue Center “to provide a safe and stable home for coral colonies to receive world-class care from a team of coral experts”. Along with helping to preserve the coral reefs; a SeaWorld veterinarian, Dr. Montano, is studying the reproductive systems in sharks off the coast of the Carolinas. According to The Science Times, “a key focus of the project is protecting mating grounds, nurseries, and feeding grounds to help the species survive in the long term”. Long live shark week!

With SeaWorld parks opening back up to the public, many beloved events are coming back for the crowd’s entertainment! A couple of these being The Sesame Street Parade in the Orlando park, and Electric Ocean in the San Diego park. Aside from the immediate entertainment returning, SeaWorld San Diego is hosting its first Howl-O-Scream event this fall. This event will mean parks will be open late with many spooky additions lurking around each and every corner. Be warned that the nighttime spooks are not kid-friendly.
The last big update is one from SeaWorld’s new CEO, Marc Swanson. Swanson intends to continue the plans for building hotels near the parks in Florida with a goal of targeting multi-day visitors. He also intends to add a new attraction to each park, each year.
