Sea Rescue is a live action, half-hour television program designed to meet the educational and informational needs of children aged 13-16. Sea Rescue highlights the work done by the SeaWorld Rescue Team and its partner organizations as they rescue marine animals in danger. The weekly series shows the teams as they rehabilitate the animals and return them to their natural habitat in the water. Veterinarians, animal care experts, animal science researchers and government authorities are among the members of the crews working to save animals -- including whales, manatees and sea lions -- from such mishaps as oil spills and the creatures getting caught in fishing line.
