Sea World Pledges Help for Animals Affected by Oil Spill


All of the Sea World parks are known for the assistance they offer animals, both in the wild and in rescue/rehabilitation programs in the parks and behind the scenes. In the wake of the latest oil spill tragedy affecting the Gulf of Mexico and the coast of Alabama, Sea World has jumped in to help. The official statement is below:

"SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment – including the SeaWorld parks in Orlando, San Antonio and San Diego -- today pledged their expertise, facilities, manpower and resources to aid animals affected by the devastating oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
SeaWorld’s animal rescue teams have particular expertise with the care and treatment of oiled animals. All three SeaWorld parks rescue and rehabilitate hundreds of ill, orphaned and injured marine animals each year; more than 1,000 in just the first four months of 2010."

Here is a video of Sea World Orlando veterinarian Dr. Chris Dold, explaining a bit about who and why Sea World plans to help.
