SeaWorld Orlando’s Flamingos Explore Pumpkin Patch

Orlando, FL, USA (September 22, 2016) – To celebrate the first day of fall, flamingos at SeaWorld Orlando were greeted with a big surprise: a bountiful pumpkin patch created just for them.

Throughout the year, SeaWorld’s animal care and training teams continually introduce new ways to enrich the animal environments in the park. Unique activities, such as putting lettuce among the pumpkins pique the flamingos’ interest and offer something new for them to see and explore. Holistic behavioral programs like this one focus on health, exercise and provide additional mental challenge and fun for the animals.

While Floridians are not yet feeling crisp fall air when they step outside, SeaWorld’s aviculturists couldn’t wait to give the tropical birds a taste of the new season coupled with a peek at its prettiest colors.
