Welcome Ridgway!
Ridgeway Baby Dolphin
We are thrilled to share that last month, Ridgway the rescue dolphin joined his new pod at the Dolphin Nursery! Rescued in July 2022 with life threating injuries, Ridgway spent more than five months under the watch and care of the SeaWorld Rescue team. After continuous progress and exceeding expectations in his recovery, Ridgway was moved to the nursery to begin integrating with the pod and learning important skills and behaviors. Be sure to visit the Dolphin Nursery and welcome Ridgway. You may even get to witness one of his bottle feedings! Check the park schedule for this and other animal offerings.

Hammerhead Shark Addition to Shark Encounter

Have you noticed anything new in Shark Encounter? Dutch, a great hammerhead shark, was recently transferred to SeaWorld Orlando from Georgia Aquarium as part of a collaborative effort caring for shark species in accredited zoos and aquariums. Great hammerhead sharks are critically endangered with an estimated population decline of up to 80%. You can learn more about these amazing animals and how you can help their conservation next time you visit!
