WHOA – You Need to SEA This!
- Thalley, our resident green sea turtle, has a book written about her!
- SEA LIFE Grapevine is the first SEA LIFE in the US to be permitted to rehabilitate sick and injured sea turtles and release them back into the wild through partnerships with the Animal Rehabilitation Keep, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other Texas coastal sea turtle hospitals.
- Boomer, short for Boomerang, suffered from a boat strike injury. He was rehabilitated and released but kept coming back every time they released him, hence the name Boomerang.
Interact with real sea creatures
Rockpools are made from water left behind when the tide goes out. Many of different creatures live in these shallow pools – they all need to be tough to adapt to different temperatures and waves crashing over them!
- Sea stars have hundreds of tube feet that they use to crawl along the ocean floor or rocks
- Anemones are filter feeders, dining on plankton and any other creatures that swim too close and bump into their stinging tentacles
- Depending on the species, sea stars can have more than the traditional five arms!
