BlowTYME from TYME! TYME Hair Care and Heat Tools #TYME

SeaWorld Orlando Proudly Welcomes Whiskered Baby Walrus: Calf is second walrus birth at park, and one of only 18 walruses living in zoological facilities in the U.S.

SeaWorld Orlando’s animal care and veterinary teams are proud to announce the birth of a 150-pound, female Pacific walrus calf on July 3, to mom Kaboodle and dad Garfield.  This is 16-year-old Kaboodle’s second calf and the second calf born at SeaWorld Orlando.  Both Kaboodle and her calf are doing well. 
Under the watchful eyes of attentive animal care teams, it was determined that Kaboodle was not lactating and the calf had not received critical early nutrition.   The team made the decision to intervene and is now providing 24-hour care including eight bottle feedings a day, socialization and companionship, providing the opportunity for the calf to thrive.   

“I am incredibly proud to watch our teams in action as they provide world-class care for Kaboodle and her calf,” said Gus Antorcha, CEO of SeaWorld Parks.  “Our talented veterinarians and animal experts gave the best in prenatal care for Kaboodle, and now ongoing, round-the-clock care of mom and calf.”

SeaWorld’s walrus program plays an important role in educating and inspiring the public about these threatened animals and what we can do to help.  In SeaWorld’s 55-year history of animal care, only four walrus calves have been born.  With this birth there are now 18 walruses living in six zoological facilities in the United States, giving the public the chance to see these animals up-close and learn how human activities impact their survival, as well as offering scientists and researchers the ability to better understand walrus biology that may be impossible to study in the wild. 
Walruses face significant threats in the wild including the disappearance of floating sea ice due to warmer temperatures and a dwindling food supply.  The SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund has provided research assistance on the Pacific walrus and the impact of habitat loss.  Pacific walrus numbers reached record lows in the early 1960s but rebounded by the 1980s as a result of robust conservation efforts. Unfortunately, the population is once again in decline, primarily due to a change in habitat conditions.  Walruses depend on stable sea ice for everything from food to providing safe havens for their young.
With the permission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, SeaWorld Orlando has raised 10 orphaned walrus calves throughout the past 50 years, including the new calf’s father, Garfield.
Dr. Stacy DiRocco, a senior veterinarian at SeaWorld Orlando, shared, “Our team is incredibly proud of the birth of this walrus calf — only the second ever at SeaWorld Orlando, and the team is providing around-the-clock care to monitor the health of both calf and mom.”   She continued: “Being able to share this story with our guests and the public is extraordinarily gratifying.  Walruses need our help, and ambassadors like Kaboodle, her newborn calf and our Wild Arctic population help to tell an important story.” 

Kaboodle and her calf remain behind the scenes during these first important weeks as the baby continues to gain weight and learn to swim.  Guests to the park can still see the other residents of Wild Arctic, including more walruses and beluga whales. 

For more information, visit Follow SeaWorld Orlando on Facebook and Instagram for the latest park updates.

Pacific Walrus Facts:
·       Walrus gestation is 15–16 months. 
·       Kaboodle gained approximately 300 pounds during her pregnancy.
·       Newborn calves weigh 99–165 pounds and are 3–4 feet long.
·       Kaboodle’s calf should gain 1.5–2 pounds per day and 4–6 inches each month.
·       Walrus milk is composed of fat, protein and water, providing rich nutrients for a nursing calf.
·       By one month, newborn walruses are strong swimmers.
·       Walrus calves are born with whiskers, which aid in detecting the shellfish that are part of their diet. 
·       Both males and females have large tusks that are used for defense, cutting through ice and getting out of the water.

The SeaWorld Orlando rescue team has had a busy June and their efforts are paying off! On June 18, three juvenile green sea turtles were returned to their natural environment by the SeaWorld Orlando rescue team after months of treatment at SeaWorld Orlando. The three turtles were rescued in February and were found lethargic and covered in barnacles. One, found at Vark Park in Flagler City was returned to the nearby Tom Renick Park in Ormond Beach, while the other two were returned to Washington Oaks Gardens State Park in Flagler City after transferring to SeaWorld Orlando from Whitey lab.
On Tuesday, June 25, two loggerhead turtles also made their way back to the Atlantic Ocean with the help of the SeaWorld Orlando rescue team when they were returned to Coca Beach. One loggerhead had been rescued by the UCF marine turtle group in March from the Trident Basin at Canaveral Air Force Station and was found missing his left flipper from a previous injury, lethargic and covered in barnacles. The second loggerhead, also found lethargic and emaciated, was rescued in March from Cape Canaveral and transferred to SeaWorld Orlando from the Brevard Zoo Sea Turtle Healing Center. Both turtles received full veterinary exam antibiotics, anti-parasitic treatments and a proper healthy diet while in SeaWorld Orlando’s care.

Additionally on June 25, the SeaWorld Orlando rescue team returned a Florida Sandhill crane with a fishhook in its foot. The bird was monitored and treated with antibiotics prior to being returned. Florida Sandhill cranes are protected by both state and federal law due to decreased population as a result of habitat destruction.
In collaboration with government agencies and partner marine life facilities, more than 2,000 sea turtles have been rescued by the SeaWorld Orlando team since 1980. For more than 50 years, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment has helped animals in need – ill, injured, orphaned or abandoned, with the goal of returning them to the wild. More than 35,000 animals have been rescued by the expert animal rescue team that is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

If you see an injured marine animal, you can help by calling the FWC hotline at 888-404-3922 or by dialing *FWC on a cellular device.

All sea turtle return footage produced by SeaWorld under FWS Permit Number TE134265-2 and FWC Permit Number MTP-19-035.

All New: SeaWorld Rescue Experience

In June, SeaWorld also announced the all new SeaWorld Rescue Experience for guests who want an inside look at the park’s rescue operations. During the four hour, hands-on program guests join our world-renown SeaWorld Orlando rescue team to help learn, feed and care for a wide variety of rescued animals. Guests work alongside the team whose tireless efforts have helped rescue, rehabilitate, and return more than 35,000 animals over the past 50 years.

NASCAR Driver Aric Almirola Celebrates Independence Day With Visit to LEGOLAND® Florida Resort

Anyone here a fan of NASCAR? I know I am. Who is your favorite driver?

NASCAR driver Aric Almirola typically enjoys life in the fast lane. However, the two-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series winner and Florida native slowed down this week to spend some much beloved family time at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort.

With his wife and two young children by his side, Almirola took in the sights and sounds of the park’s newest expansion, THE LEGO® MOVIE™ WORLD. The family took to the skies on their triple decker couch while riding THE LEGO MOVIE: Masters of Flight, bounced in delight on Unikitty’s Disco Drop, climbed to the top of Benny’s Playship and finished with a family portrait taken directly from inside Emmet’s Super Suite.

“The new LEGO MOVIE WORLD was incredible. It makes you feel like you’re in the movie,” said Almirola. “That was one of my personal favorites and the kids loved it too.”

This weekend Almirola will be racing in the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway against many of the world’s best drivers. And while the winning driver will live in triumph, Almirola will forever have the glory of placing ‘minilanders’ alongside his family inside the Daytona Speedway model.

“My family and I had a blast at LEGOLAND this Fourth of July weekend,” said Almirola. “We even got to put our own LEGO characters in their Daytona International Speedway display. How cool is that?”

In a long racing season filled with immense travel, drivers and their families spend much of their time on the road. However, Almirola is steadfast in his commitment to spending as much time as possible with his family away from the race track.

“It was great to know that the theme park was built for kids, the rides and attractions were exactly what they wanted. As busy of a life we live, we always try to squeeze in some family time and LEGOLAND Florida Resort was a great choice.”
