It is Monday and we were back to work at 5:00 a.m. I found it very hard to wake up this morning after spending the weekend as a tourist - sightseeing, shopping and eating “normal” food. Since we have been working in the communities, all of the meals cooked by the families have been very traditional -rice, beans, and pork - things I normally don’t eat. So last night when I had dinner at Papa John’s Pizza, it was like a piece of heaven.

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and the Cahoon Elementary Magnet School of Animal Science have teamed up to provide students with a innovative, year-long program that will challenge children to strategize solutions regarding some of our world’s greatest conservation challenges. The project is called “Conservation Matters” and allows children to apply the abstract knowledge of Language Arts, Social Studies, Math and Science directly to real-life conservation challenges.
A few weeks ago, a Muscovy duck was brought to SeaWorld with a discarded fishing line and hook embedded in his mouth. Although we're guessing that at one time there was something tasty at the end of the line, this unlucky duck was duped like many other ducks who nibble on discarded fishing material. Helping animals both big and small, our bird experts jumped on the opportunity to help unhook this little guy.
Another sea turtle life saved!! A 250-pound green sea turtle with serious injuries is on the road to recovery after receiving life-saving medical treatment at our SeaWorld San Diego’s Animal Care Complex. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrative (NOAA) brought the adult male, named Bruce, to us Jan. 25. NOAA researchers spotted the animal breathing slowly, lethargic and pretty much non-responsive during a routine turtle survey in San Diego’s South Bay.
SeaWorld Orlando’s rehabilitation team is now caring for its fifth and sixth rescued, cold-stressed manatees of 2011. Both manatees were brought to the park by the Florida’s Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).
