In Kenya, innovative technology is being used to help track elephants by cell phone, which due to the intersecting living spaces of humans and animals, helps to minimize conflict between locals and these amazing, yet potentially dangerous animals.
This May, the SeaWorld San Diego Penguin Encounter celebrates its 30th anniversary. For three decades, the Penguin Encounter weather hasn’t wavered much. It’s always been an unwelcoming brisk 25 degrees, with 100 percent chance of snow.

A 3.5 foot-long, 35-pound dolphin was born at Discovery Cove on Friday, November 30 at 10:22 a.m.

I was very excited for today! After taking care of Foundation Jambeli’s animal residents, I had the opportunity to sit down with staff members and Julio, who is the wildlife veterinarian for the center. In addition to working with Foundation Jambeli, Julio also assists other establishments like the Guayaquil’s Historical Park! The main goal of our meeting was to exchange ideas from our own experiences on the proper diets for the Guayaquil macaws living at the center. We addressed several different aspects pertai
One of the highlights of snorkeling in the Grand Reef at Discovery Cove are the colorful, unique-looking fish that swim below and beside you. Now,the tropical fish at Discovery Cove have also played a huge role in a new development with the Rising Tide Conservation project. Rising Tide Conservation is an initiative of the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund.
