This past Mother’s Day, the SeaWorld Rescue Team responded to rescue a distressed mother manatee – and her still-nursing calf – near Satellite Beach, Fla. and brought the pair to SeaWorld. The mother has a collapsed lung, which creates buoyancy issues, so SeaWorld outfitted her with a “manatee wetsuit” the park designed for such rescue cases. The wetsuit helps assist the manatee with floating and allows the team draw out trapped air and fluids.
The mother manatee weighs 1,070 pounds, is 9 feet long and is estimated to be 10 years old. It was determined that her injuries were caused by a water craft strike. The calf is estimated to be 2-3 years old and, although he was unharmed by the water craft, he is still nursing and dependent on his mother. It is important that the pair remain together as the calf continues to grow and learn from its mother.
Over the next several weeks, the SeaWorld Orlando Animal Rescue team will closely monitor the manatee’s progress.
Families and friends can celebrate Latin culture at this annual festival featuring live concerts by internationally renowned Latin musical artists, savory authentic cuisine by SeaWorld’s Executive Chef Hector Colon, family-friendly activities and unique merchandise from local artisans.
New this year, SeaWorld will transform the park’s garden area into a mini-fiesta for families. There will be monitors to watch the concert from afar, educational activities for children, domino tables, up-close encounters with some of SeaWorld’s amazing animal ambassadors and much more. Viva la Musica festival activities begin at 1 p.m. each Saturday with concerts starting at 4 p.m. at Bayside Stadium.
The all-new sea lion comedy adventure Clyde & Seamore’s Sea Lion High is now open at SeaWorld Orlando. Full of fun and big personalities of sea lions, walruses and otters, the show takes place in an aquatic-themed high school where laughter and education go hand in hand (er, flipper).
A special new pre-show salutes teachers from all over, and guests learn new information about the animal stars, their relationships with the trainers, and how the animals are trained.
True to the more than 40-year legacy of SeaWorld’s beloved sea lion shows, Sea Lion High is an entertaining and fun comedy that is a perfect fit for sea lions’ large personalities. Through the adventures, laughs and endearing animal antics, guests are inspired to care about these amazing animals.
Full of adventure, fun and big personalities, the show takes place in an aquatic-themed high school where laughter and education go hand in hand (er, flipper). When our dynamic duo – Clyde and Seamore – are nominated to win scholarships to Ocean University, they must enter crash courses in science, dance and gym in a storyline that is full of fast-paced fun. The cast of amazing animals and trainers connect with guests as only SeaWorld can, and an educational pre-show celebrates teachers from all over.
“Sea Lion High is a place where animals and people learn and play,” says Michael Fletcher, Vice President of Entertainment for SeaWorld Orlando. “Our guests will connect with these animals through a show that is full of fun and celebration, yet also blends in entertaining messages that encourage education, exploration and using your imagination.”
Announced for this weekend are the headline performers for the second week of the event: award-winning singer/songwriter, Rodney Atkins, on Saturday, March 14, and the longest-performing R&B group, Kool & the Gang, on Sunday, March 15.
Scheduled performances now include:

It’s a hilarious tale, filled with amazing animal behaviors and splashy audience fun. Clyde and Seamore find themselves in slippery pursuit of their high school diplomas and judging from the slapstick, high-energy pranks and hijinks, there’s no doubt Clyde and Seamore will emerge as heads of their class.
When joined by mischievous otters, a 2,300-pound walrus and a cast of goofy human characters swimming along in the fun, it certainly won’t be a normal class.
