|FIELD TRIP: SeaWorld. Board the bus for our full-day field trip. SeaWorld in Orlando is one of the world’s foremost marine-life based zoological theme parks. Its educational programs and activities connect people to the sea and sea life in innovative and entertaining ways. Collectively, the SeaWorld parks nationwide maintain one of the largest animal collections in North America: approximately 67,000 animals including 7,000 marine and terrestrial animals and 60,000 fish.|
During our field trip, you will go behind the scenes as your knowledgeable guide provides fascinating information about SeaWorld’s standards of care, state-of-the-art animal habitats, and commitment to animal welfare through a broad range of best practices based upon behavioral enrichment, preventive health, veterinary medicine and facilities design and management.
Highlights include learning how animal experts care for rescued manatees and sea turtles, touching a shark, exploring a hidden polar bear den, and interacting with a penguin. One of the most popular aspects of the experience is getting up close with dolphins to learn what makes these clever characters. You will see how the park cares for them as you participate in a training session and even be able to touch a dolphin.
