SeaWorld San Diego announces January Events
SEAWORLD GETS WILD AND UP CLOSE WITH JACK HANNA: It's a wild world out there and SeaWorld® San Diego is the place to celebrate amazing animals and the wonder of nature at the park’s Jack Hanna Weekend event, January 14-15! Guests can join world-renowned animal expert Jack Hanna—also referred to as Jungle Jack—to meet some astounding animals and hear about their compelling stories. The star of two nationally broadcast TV shows detailing his international animal adventures, Hanna will also share his personal experiences about his travels around the world to raise awareness of animals and the challenges they face in the wild. Guests can meet incredible animals and learn firsthand how they can make a difference for wildlife and wild places with their own everyday actions. They can in turn share that message by using #JungleJackisBack when posting images on social media.
PENGUIN AWARENESS EVENTS AT SEAWORLD: Guests of all ages can help make a difference and spend time with SeaWorld’s coolest animals in celebration of Penguin Awareness Day (Jan. 20). For a more exclusive experience, penguin lovers can help raise awareness at the fourth annual Penguin Awareness Cocktail Party and Dinner on Jan. 21. Guests 21 and older will have the chance to get up close and personal with these animals and engage in conversation with conservation ambassadors and penguin specialists to learn more about the lives of penguins. Later, guests will enjoy a special dinner at the park’s Nautilus Pavilion and have the opportunity to participate in a silent auction. All proceeds from this event support future SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund efforts. Dress is business casual attire but guests are encouraged to come dressed in black and white colors.

The Chinese Acrobats of Hebei will amaze the audience with incredible feats of agility and grace at the park’s Mission Bay Theater. At the front of the park and at the Lunar New Year Festival area, guests will be greeted with festive red décor and artwork depicting a rooster, in honor of the Lunar New Year’s astrological symbol of 2017.
