How We Can Help!

PLAY YOUR PART!

By sharing the wonder and beauty of our oceans, we hope you’ll learn to love them as much as we do. SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium allows visitors to experience the ocean’s hidden marvels, and our expert staff are dedicated to, and passionate about conservation.

 

Conservation efforts can become most important during hurricane season.  In Florida, hurricane season lasts from June 1 through November 30. Hurricanes have a critical effect on our natural environment, as well as, sea life.   The recent events of Hurricane Irma battered sea turtle nesting grounds in Florida and many people are asking what they can do to help. 

  • DO NOT dig up nests or attempt to save sea turtle eggs.
  • If you find sea turtle eggs that have been washed out of nests, leave the eggs where you found them. Once an egg is washed out of the nest, it’s no longer viable.)
  • If you find a stranded or injured sea turtle, DO NOT PUT IT BACK IN THE WATER. It may need special care, instead call Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) at 1-888-404-3922 or dial *FWC or #FWC from your mobile phone. They will properly instruct you on what to do.

MAKE SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD CHOICES!

Ever thought about where the fish you eat comes from? Whether it’s wrapped in newspaper or piled high in a seafood cocktail, the choices you make can have a big impact on marine creatures all over the world. In fact, bad fishing practices driven by consumer demand contribute to many of the problems our oceans face today.

 

A Seafood Watch guide can help you to ensure your next fish dish is a sustainable one. Be sure to ask a SEA LIFE aquarist during your visit about making sustainable seafood choices, whether at the local supermarket or a visit to a favorite restaurant.

 

By making informed decisions about the fish you eat you can play a positive role in protecting our oceans for generations to come!
