LOS ANGELES (May 3, 2016) - Sea Rescue has been inspiring families on Saturday mornings since 2012, and has now been awarded with a Daytime Creative Arts Emmy® Award at this year’s Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards in Los Angeles. Sea Rescue was awarded the prize for “Outstanding Children’s Series”.
Sea Rescue showcases the touching and inspirational stories of marine animal rescue, rehabilitation and return to the wild by the SeaWorld Rescue Team and partner organizations. Featured episodes this season include the California sea lion crisis, and a record breaking transfer of hundreds of cold stunned sea turtles from New England to rehabilitation centers around the country.
The heartwarming episode “Georgia on my Mind,” submitted to the academy for consideration, shares the story of Georgia, a rescued orphaned baby manatee who grows up to become a mom, grandmother, and foster manatee mom. This is the show’s first win and third nomination.
