Sina the sea otter!! Sina was rescued by the Monterey Bay Aquarium and was successfully raised by a surrogate sea otter mother named Abby, that SeaWorld let Monterey borrow. Because of that success, Abby stayed in Monterey which opened up a spot at SeaWorld San Diego for another sea otter. This is a big deal because there are only ELEVEN facilities in the world that house sea otters, with only FOUR of those housing Sina’s species, the Southern Sea otter. When there is no room for a rescued otter, they have to be immediately put down even though they are an endangered species for either health reasons where they can’t return back to their population, or simply because there is no room for them. It’s because of facilities working together like SeaWorld San Diego and Monterey Bay Aquarium that amazing animals like Sina get a second chance at life!! I’m so proud to work for such an amazing facility!! #seasonalappreciationweek #seaworldsandiego #southernseaotter (at Otter Outlook)

Anddddd

as of last Thursday, I have officially accepted a full time animal training position at SeaWorld San Diego!! I will be staying at Dolphin Point, too!!!

I’m just waiting on HR stuff like background checks and paperwork to be processed, and then I get my official start date as a full timer!!

Been following this dream since I was four years old and now it’s finally realized!!!!Β 

Furry friends become family right away, and losing them is always the hardest. We took this pretty lady in on a stormy, rainy night and she ended up being pregnant with two kittens. I’ll never forget that night or what a good mama she was to her babies Doheny and Dana. She was quite the cuddler, too. It breaks my heart to know the next time I come home this love won’t be there. I’m gonna miss you tons Cali, aka mama cat! ❀️🐱❀️
