In addition to the tree lighting, the families will enjoy dinner and dessert at SeaWorld, a meet-and-greet with Rudolph and friends, and a preview performance of SeaWorld’s all-new Winter Wonderland on Ice show.

WALRUS AWARENESS WEEK COMING UP: SeaWorld is proud to participate in Walrus Awareness Week Nov. 30 through Dec. 7, 2019. Along with participating zoological parks across the country, SeaWorld will celebrate the species with special presentations that bring awareness to some of the challenges they face in the wild, including that they are becoming more separated from their food sources located on the continental shelf, due to loss of sea ice. SeaWorld’s walrus experts will educate guests about walruses, including tips on what all of us can do to help. It is more important now than ever to educate the public about walruses and to manage their populations in zoological settings. Walruses are classed as threatened by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). According to the IUCN, the arctic region is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet. SeaWorld is currently home to one male and four female Pacific walruses. Fun fact: Despite tipping the scale at more than 3,500 pounds, walruses are really fast swimmers.
