Animals

TurtleTrek features two massive, naturalistic saltwater and freshwater habitats, home to sea turtles and manatees, some of them rescued and cared for by SeaWorld’s animal teams.

The sea turtle residents have been deemed non-releasable by the Florida government -- due to genetics, illness or being orphaned -– and have found their permanent home here at TurtleTrek.

Since 1976, SeaWorld Orlando has rescued, cared for and returned hundreds of endangered manatees and since 1980 returned more than 1,200 sea turtles back to their natural waters.
