SeaWorld San Antonio & Aquatica recently announced a new partnership with the Amos Rehabilitation Keep. This partnership will begin with the construction of a new, interactive sea turtle attraction called Turtle Reef at the SeaWorld park in San Antonio to be completed in the spring of 2019. SeaWorld will provide the ARK 5 percent of proceeds from turtle merchandise sales. In addition, the ARK will be able to assist SeaWorld in the education signage associated with the new Turtle Reef, a fascinating habitat that will enable guests to get an up-close look at threatened and endangered sea turtles, plus learn about the threats the species face in the wild. The focal point of the exhibit will be a 126,000-gallon coral reef-themed environment featuring green sea turtles from Texas and the West Coast, some of which may be transferred from the ARK.
“ARK, one of the nation’s most-dedicated animal rescue organizations, is relentless in its work to help animals in the wild,” said Carl Lum, SeaWorld & Aquatica San Antonio Park President. “This is an excellent fit for us since, in our more than 50-year history, SeaWorld has rescued more than 33,000 animals in need. This partnership will continue our company’s commitment to be the largest marine animal rescuer worldwide.”
In conjunction, with the announcement of Turtle Reef, SeaWorld also announced several new adventure rides. For more information on the new attractions or to purchase Annual Passes, visit SeaWorldSanAntonio.com.
