Years ago, I worked at Sea World as a whalewatcher to monitor calf and social development of the Shamu family. Basically, I was a scientifically glorified babysitter where I was paid to watch whales which is what I would normally do anyways. Nicole was one of my colleagues and we bonded over fish buckets. Though we both moved on to other ventures, we are still connected by the animals we cherish. Today, she works in the Animal Care Department at Sea World, caring for sick and injured wildlife and flippered residents of the park. She produced this video about the Animal Care Department at Sea World, the animals she cares for on a daily basis, Sea World’s rescue and rehabilitation, and the people she works with that are dedicated to helping wildlife.
A special thank you to Nicole for allowing me to share this with all of you.
