Dive into SeaWorld’s Coral Reef Conservation Efforts

Hi everyone, I’m Chrissy and I’m one of your Senior Aquarists over here at SeaWorld San Diego. I work with the sharks in the Shark Encounter and I love every aspect of my job and the oceans. Which is why I’m so excited that I was selected as one of your Conservation Ambassadors through the SeaWorld Busch Gardens Conservation Fund. Next week I’m going to travel and work alongside the leading coral organization, the Coral Restoration Foundation. There’s a lot of things that are happening in our oceans today which are causing coral destruction. There’s coral bleaching, there’s humans and there’s the changing ecosystem that’s happening today. I’m going to get to work alongside this organization and see their offshore nurseries where they
regrow corals and replant them on destroyed coral reefs. This is also a very exciting times since the corals will be reproducing or spawning. So be sure to follow me on SeaWorld’s social media channels and see how my journey goes!
