WALRUS CALVES REACH NEW MILESTONE AT SEAWORLD

Guests can now see walrus calves on habitat at Wild Arctic

Orlando, Fla. (April 23, 2018) – Today Ginger and Aku, two young walrus calves, were introduced to the walrus habitat inside Wild Arctic at SeaWorld Orlando. The revamped space will provide guests the opportunity to view Ginger and Aku from multiple angles both above and below water. The popular exhibit is also home to two adult Pacific walruses, Garfield and Kaboodle. Guests will have the opportunity to see both the walrus calves and adult walruses throughout the day as they rotate use of the habitat.

Ginger and Aku were introduced to each other last year after Aku was rescued from a gold mining dredge off the coast of Alaska. Ginger was born at SeaWorld Orlando in June of last year. Ginger’s age and suitability as a social companion combined with SeaWorld’s expertise in raising orphaned walrus calves played a significant role in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services (USFWS) decision to send Aku to Orlando.

For park operating hours and additional information, guests can visit www.seaworldorlando.com. Learn more about Aku and Ginger by visiting the SeaWorld Orlando Blog.

SeaWorld Animal Rescue Team Caring for Mother-and-Calf Manatee Pair


ORLANDO, Fla. (April 9, 2018) – Earlier this evening, the Clearwater Marine Aquarium transported a distressed mother manatee – and her nursing calf – from North Fort Myers to SeaWorld Orlando for rehabilitation and care. The pair was rescued by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) after the mother manatee was observed floating and experiencing buoyancy issues. 

Buoyancy issues can negatively impact a manatee’s health, eating patterns and the nursing of a dependent calf and if not corrected can be life-threatening. The condition is known as a pneumothorax and it was potentially caused by the blunt force of a boat strike. The calf is estimated to be a 1-year-old and, although unharmed, is still nursing and dependent on its mother. It is important that the pair remain together as the calf continues to grow and learn from its mother.

So far this year, SeaWorld Orlando’s Animal Rescue Team has rescued 30 manatees and returned 7.

First, riders will be launched at 33 feet per second with water jets designed to propel rafts into the first of several enclosed tube sections. Next, riders will swirl into a colossal translucent sphere which spins the raft around the slide walls before entering another enclosed tube section.
