SeaWorld San Antonio recently announced that they have partnered with the Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network. SeaWorld San Antonio is also committing over $1 million dollars in additional funding and resources, and the park is comitted to building a new state-of-the art facility that will provide sick or injured animals that need long term rehabilitation 24 hour care. According to SeaWorldCares.com, one of the websites that SeaWorld manages, this announcement has been made in a critical time, as January marks the annual stranding season, trigger by several factors, including cold air and changing water temperatures.
Imagine all of the work and dedication it takes from the people working in SeaWorld’s rescue team it takes to care for a sick or injured animal. Imagine all of the late nights team members stay up for to help rescue or monitor/care for an animal in need. If SeaWorld didn’t care about animals, why would these people be giving so much to help give sick and injured animals a second chance at life?
