SeaWorld Orlando park guests can see two walrus calves, Ginger and Aku, at the park’s Wild Arctic habitat. The calves were introduced to each other last month after Aku was rescued from a gold mining dredge off the coast of Alaska.

Ginger was born at SeaWorld Orlando on June 3 to Kaboodle, a 14-year-old female walrus, and is the first walrus calf to be born at the park. A few weeks after her birth, the SeaWorld Orlando Animal Care and Veterinarian Teams determined that she was not gaining weight and intervened to ensure she received enough nutrition. Over the course of the last five months, the teams have provided Ginger with around-the-clock care, including bottle feedings, socialization and companionship.
