Over a three weekend period, starting on January 11th, children and adults alike will have the opportunity to learn and interact with celebrity staff, who show how SeaWorld has worked so hard for many decades to preserve, protect and nurture the diverse wildlife it features in its theme park.
To enjoy Wild Days at SeaWorld Orlando, guests can get their 2014 SeaWorld Fun Card, which allows them to visit the park with unlimited access to a whole year—including Wild Days’ weekends—and get closer to the dolphins, sharks, killer whales, birds, and other animals. Here are the scheduled weekend themes at SeaWorld’s Wild Days in Orlando:
- January 11-12: Jack Hanna Weekend – The always-entertaining “Jungle Jack” will educate guest to help them connect to the wildlife through both facts and his own experiences with animals from all over the world. Jack Hanna is known worldwide for his knowledge and experience gained as Director and Zookeeper of the Columbus Zoo.
- January 18-19: Sea Rescue Weekend – Many of SeaWorld’s animals have been rescued and rehabilitated by the park’s star-studded team of marine biologists, veterinarians and other specialists who love to help injured or orphaned animals, nurturing them back to health and giving them an opportunity at a new life.
- January 25-26: Penguin Lovers' Weekend with Julie Scardina – SeaWorld Ambassador, trainer and educator Julie Scardina explores the world of penguins and will share her experiences in caring for these cold weather critters at SeaWorld—including how “Antarctica: Empire of the Penguins” was created. Experience the world of penguins by dancing like a penguin, walking among them in penguin colony and participate in a cheerful “ice block” party.
Finally, SeaWorld guests can also enjoy a variety of shows throughout the park, including the Shamu Up Close experience where you can see how killer whale trainers work hard to care for Shamu and its friends in a walkthrough exhibit and other educational opportunities that will be the delight of everyone who comes face-to-face with them. In addition, the new Trainer Talks series will expose guests to the SeaWorld Animal Training team and the animals it takes care of—including whales, sea lions, walruses and other creatures. To experience Trainer Talks, check park maps for times and locations as soon as you go through the gates.
It should be noted that The SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund has granted more than $9M conservation efforts, research and the protection of wildlife and their habitats. Thanks to these efforts, this amazing Orlando theme park educates thousands of guests who come from all over the world and in turn become ambassadors of the goodwill mission of SeaWorld.
