In our past SeaWorld visits we’ve enjoyed seeing various animals but on our most recent visit a few weeks ago, we got to go behind the scenes and see first hand how SeaWorld also helps ill, injured, orphaned or abandoned animals with the goal of rehabilitating them and returning them to the ocean.

7 Simple Things YOU Can Do To Help Protect Sea Animals - TM2S

Here are 7 simple things YOU can do to help protect Sea Animals

1. All waterways lead to our one ocean, so don’t pour harmful chemicals down the drain or flush medications and cat litter.

2. Plastic bags look a lot like jellyfish to a hungry sea turtle, so recycle plastic and try using reusable bags instead (which is better for the environment too).

3. Help Take Care of the Beach. Something as simple as cleaning up after yourself when you’re at the beach helps a lot. Consider participating in a local beach cleanup.

I4. f you’re on a boat, take it slow in marked areas so that you don’t hurt manatees and other marine animals. Also, be sure not to throw any trash overboard.

5. Going Fishing? If so, recycle or safely discard of your fishing line. Never throw it into the water because marine animal entanglement is the most common injury.

6. Make sure the seafood you’re eating is sustainable. Want to check? Visit msc.org

7. If you see an injured marine animal or bird, help by calling the FWC hotline at 1(888) 404-3922 or by dialing *FWC on your cell phone.
