AnimalVision, SeaWorld‘s newest and coolest interactive camera, will debut tomorrow, Wednesday, November 13, 2013! There will be 24/7 streaming HD video, various camera views, downloadable games, take and share snapshots and more for your family to enjoy. You can view and interact with the website here: Wednesday’s premier will showcase each of SeaWorld‘s cameras, (Orlando-Penguin, San Diego-Turtle and San Antonio-Stingrays) as each will have their own host interacting with viewers. You will hear Chuck Cureau along with one of our divers during our 10-minute segment.

Animal habitat cameras have proven to be popular for SeaWorld and animal fans alike. In 2012 during a six-week partnership with Discovery Channel, fans across the country spent an astounding 1.5 million hours watching penguins in SeaWorld San Diego Penguin Encounter® via a streaming camera feed.

Building on that success, AnimalVision provides animal camera fans with an interactive experience that goes beyond simply watching the animals demonstrating their natural behaviors. The new platform will feature:

* Video web portal designed to be viewed from any computer, smartphone or tablet
* The ability to take, share and save photos of their favorite video moment
* Live Twitter feeds share comments with other AnimalVision viewers and interactive “ask the experts” sessions with animal trainers and zoological staff
* Education and conservation information and facts about each featured species
* Downloadable games
* Additional animal species will be showcased in the near future

Each of the six cameras is high definition for the best viewing experience possible, including multiple viewpoints of the habitats. The cameras at SeaWorld Orlando’s newest attraction, Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin™, show four different species of penguins both in the water and up on the ice. At Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Waterpark® in San Antonio, more than 200 stingrays and tropical fish including various species of angel, tang and butterfly fish are seen from shallow and deep underwater viewpoints. Turtle Reef® at SeaWorld San Diego features more than 40 threatened green sea turtles ranging in age from four to 50 years old with a view of the 280,000-gallon aquarium they call home.
