If you like watching manatees on their journey to recovery, or you just want physical proof of SeaWorld Orlando taking care of their animals, the aquatic theme park has you covered.

In what seems to be an effort to up transparency, the park's Manatee Rehabilitation center has been opened up to guests, just in time for Manatee Appreciation Day, which is today.



"In addition to viewing the animals currently undergoing rehabilitation,
guests can also see their digital medical charts, interactive exhibits,
an underwater viewing camera and videos of the SeaWorld Animal Rescue
Team in action," said SeaWorld in a statement. 

Guided tours have been a part of SeaWorld's Rescue Center for a while now, but this is the first time that entrance to the manatee area has been made complimentary to guests with the purchase of a ticket.
