The Killer Whales at SeaWorld San Diego are Getting Kelp-y
April 3, 2017
Whale, Whale, Whale... What do we have here...?

At SeaWorld we offer our Killer Whales a variety of environmental enrichment devices (EEDs) to help keep them healthy, social, and stimulated!
Side note: EEDs are just things that help keep our animals stimulated both mentally and physically, sort of like toys!
Killer whale EEDs have to be incredibly tough, or edible, which makes it a little challenging to find things that will work.
While we could tell you how much the whales enjoy playing with their EEDs, we think these photos say it all.
