Live from SeaWorld
Students will interact with SeaWorld Animal Experts during live video calls.
During a live video call, students get the opportunity to interact with SeaWorld animal care specialists (trainers, veterinarians, aquarists or aviculturists) who are working with a variety of different animals.
Our specialists are bringing animals like killer whales, sea turtles and penguins to classrooms across the nation for some splashy, educational fun. Students now have an opportunity to spend 30 minutes of face time over a live video call directly with our staff and our animals to learn more about a day in their lives.
Each session includes an interactive demonstration. Some students will learn about the animal’s respiratory system, while others experience “play dates” and are able to see the animals interact with their favorite enrichment devices. The more advanced college students might gain insight as to how our animals are trained and weighed. They learn how the behaviors taught by our staff allow for further research of animals such as killer whales to better understand them and help their wild counterparts.
Following the interactive sessions, the floor is open for students to ask any questions they may have about both our specialists and our animals. Our goal for these sessions is to inspire students to become more eager to conserve and protect our oceans and the life that lives within them. By connecting students to our animals, we hope to build a passion for conservation and wildlife.
Please note that due to the high demand for these sessions, not all requests for video conferences can be accommodated. If you think your school would love to participate in a video learning experience with SeaWorld specialists and animals, please apply by filling out the form. SeaWorld will contact you if we are able to schedule a video conference for your classroom.
