At SEA LIFE Minnesota we do what we can to help those around us. For example, Merlin Entertainments Group, our parent company, established an organization called Merlin's Magic Wand, where children who are seriously ill, disabled, or disadvantaged are provided with magical experiences at many of their attractions throughout the world. More information about Merlin's Magic Wand is available here:
Weights were added to the giant green
sea turtles shell to allow him to swim normally.

The well-being of animals is also of up-most importance to us. Which is why we work with other SEA LIFE locations to contribute to SEA LIFE SEA HAPPY, an idea that reminds us to work together to protect the beautiful marine habitats around us. Recently, we have adopted 2 giant green sea turtles from a Turtle Hospital in Florida and are slowly rehabilitating them into their new home at SEA LIFE Minnesota. More information about SEA LIFE SEA HAPPY is available here.

Our most recent endeavour allows us to help out on a local level. On October 7, 2011 from 4:00pm - 8:30pm, we will be hosting Children's Hospital Night at the Aquarium. Patients of Children's Hospital, along with their families, staff, and the supporting community, will be given the opportunity to purchase discounted tickets to the aquarium: only $9.50/person! (regular admission prices are $19.99/adult and $15.99/child) But not only that, $5 of each ticket sold will be donated directly to Children's Hospital of Minnesota!
