New Whale at Sea World San Diego

SeaWorld San Diego welcomes Sully, a new young male pilot whale, to the park this week. Sully had beached himself on Curacao last July, an island in the Caribbean, and was nursed back to health. The local rescue teams made several attempts to re2010_0105_SullyArrival-introduce Sully back into the wild but each time Sully would follow the boat back to shore, showing no sign of wanting to return to the ocean. With no long term care facility to take care of Sully, it was determined that SeaWorld San Diego was the most suitable new home for him, as the park has a long history of care and experience in taking care of pilot whales for over 20 years.
