SeaWorld Parks Blog

Want the latest scoop on SeaWorld and Busch Gardens – including info on animal rescues, news you can use, cute animal photos and video, updates on the newest attractions and more?

You’ve come to the right place, then. Welcome to our new blog.

Whether you’re an animal lover, theme park fan or blogger, this is where you can come back to again and again to explore the parks – in one convenient location. It’s all of our incredible stories and images, located in one place.

“We appreciate you, our fans,” said Anne Fischer, director of digital marketing for SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, the parks’ parent company. “Our new blog immerses you into our world with fantastic new features that will keep you current on the exciting happenings at the parks.”

“There are photos and videos you can get only from SeaWorld and Busch Gardens. There’s no shortage of amazing stories and news everyone can use. And you can always find that right here.”

With a nod to “citizen journalists,” a highlight of the new site is the “Featured Authors” section, where bloggers and online content providers can now publish their stories. Just submit your name, a short bio and the web address of your blog. The SeaWorld team selects and publishes the most compelling stories. Fans also will be able to share content by uploading and sharing pictures, videos and blog posts.

And, there’s more:

  • A new option to read stories/topics from all parks in an aggregate blog or easily drill down to stories that are park or topic specific. You’ve seen the new blog also features specific pages and content for SeaWorld, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Sesame Place and animals and conservation
  • You can sign in using Disqus and Facebook and comment on stories.
  • We’ve provided built-in sharing tools, including Facebook “Likes,” a Twitter retweet button, a button to rate stories with a thumbs up or down, and the capacity to quickly share stories with other major Web sites
  • We’ve also included the ability to take a poll or sign up for RSS feed to receive the latest blog stories in Google Reader or other RSS aggregators
