Sea World San Antonio celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and with the season lasting until December 31, you have plenty of time to plan your own wild adventure. The shows, animal exhibits, and rides make for a special experience anytime, but for an unforgettable adventure, make plans to participate in one of the park’s numerous interaction programs. Take your turn as an amateur trainer for the park’s curious sea lions and beluga whales, or go behind-the-scenes of the penguin habitat and zoological support area, where you’ll feed stingrays and learn about conservation efforts for such species as Attwater’s prairie chickens. Or look into the Resident Camp programs (offered for kids and adults), where you can work alongside animal trainers and marine biologists. See www.seaworld.com. —L.M.
