TurtleTrek opens next spring

SeaWorld is about to make waves again with new attractions for Orlando holidaymakers.

Next spring, you’ll be able to go nose-to-nose with sea turtles and manatees at SeaWorld and wade in the water with playful otters and monkey around with marmosets in island-style Fresh Water Oasis at Discovery Cove.

SeaWorld is also planning the coldest theme park attraction in the world for 2013 called Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin. No one has yet explained how we will all keep warm, but I’m sure they’ll have coats, gloves and hats ready in the Florida sunshine.

TurtleTrek lets you learn more about the sea turtle and its fascinating life from hatching on a beach to the mad dash to open waters. And you’ll be able to experience a turtle’s eye view of the ocean in the first-of-its-kind 3-D and 360-degree dome theatre.

A manatee at SeaWorld

Two habitats will be next to the dome, one saltwater for more than 1,500 fish and over a dozen sea turtles, and the other freshwater for more fish and manatees.

Many of the manatees and turtles were rescued by the park’s animal team.

SeaWorld occasionally comes under fire for using whales in shows such as Shamu. But critics should remember that the park does an enormous amount of fantastic work to protect threatened species.

Since their rescue programmes began, the team has cared for and returned to the wild nearly 240 manatees and over 1,200 sea turtles.

They care more than most of us!
