Fresh Angeles: SeaWorld Saves The Day for Animals & Park-Goers!

SeaWorld Saves The Day for Animals & Park-Goers!

There was a gray whale that had swam right up to a Dana Point harbor a few days ago, you may have heard about it. Her name is LILLY. It's been all over the news. They had thought she swam in to the shore because sometimes whales beach themselves when they are about to die. But after having a crew of experts, including SEA WORLD specialists check out this poor creature, they realized was she was just searching for help. You see, she was trapped in a net, about 150 pounds of netting to be exact, which was making it very hard for her to swim & she just got really tired. So the SEA WORLD biologists, along with other local experts were able to get the nets off of her. Which she obviously wasn't able to do herself. Hopefully by now Lilly is well on her way back to meet up with her family.

I felt really compelled to post this because I feel that some people give SEA WORLD a bad rap. The whole animals in captivity thing is always a heated debate. But what people don't realize, what doesn't get talked about is all of the good that they do. For 45 years they have been committed to the rescue and rehabilitation of animals in need. Just like that whale on the news.

Not only do they help all of our friends in the sea, but they want to help out families who come to their THEME PARKS too! For a limited time only they are having a special, where you can get a childs admission for $5 with a paid adults ticket. (which is only $69) Even more Awesome is that 100% of those proceeds will be going to a wildlife conservation of your choice. It's called SEA WORLD CARES and it's going on now through December 31, 2010. Can you imagine how much money they will be raising for these amazing animals? I hope everyone I know takes their children... And at $5 a ticket, they have made it possible, by making it affordable.

Here are the 4 areas that need our help most:

Dolphins are important predators of fish, crustaceans, and other marine fauna. They are negatively affected by habitat loss, commercial fishing conflicts, and pollution. Your support can help improve the lives of dolphins by addressing these challenges.

Sea turtles are vulnerable to natural and human impacts. Extreme weather can significantly impact coastal waters as well as key nesting areas on which turtles depend. Additionally, coastal development and disturbances, leave little room for sea turtle nesting areas. Because of these challenges and others, all sea turtles species are either threatened or endangered. Researchers and conservationists need your support to help turn the tide for these imperiled animals.

Populations of
Manatees have declined over the past 100 years, especially in Florida, due to habitat destruction, boating collisions, and pollution. The Florida manatee is one the most endangered marine mammals in the United States and is in dire need of your help. Your support will help create a brighter future for manatees in the wild.

Coral reef fish live in one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Their coral home provides food and income to billions of people. These beautiful animals are threatened at an alarming level, due to pressures from climate change, habitat destruction, coastal development, over-fishing and water pollution. Your donations will protect these reefs and the fish that make them their home.

So what are you waiting for????
Go help SEAWORLD SAVE THE DOLPHINS Now & teach your family the importance of saving other families in the sea... I'll see you there!

I recommend to buy a SeaWorld FUN CARD: Pay for a day, Get the rest of the year FREE or the BEST VALUE is to buy a Silver Annual Pass (ONLINE) for ONLY $109 pay for a year & get a second year for FREE!

*I was NOT paid or compensated in any way for this post. I just LOVE Sea World & like them, have a strong passion for saving the animals.

I love this post! You have given Sea World the much needed credit that it so richly deserves. As you list the marine mammals and others that are being supported and the rescues behind the scenes it gives us a chance to look at the bigger picture. My only hope is that we come together to Save The Day for All Creatures Big and Small and thereby save ourselves and our most beautiful planet before it's too late...
