WEST VALLEY CITY — Students at Hillsdale Elementary School had the zoo come to them on Wednesday.

SeaWorld San Diego's SeaWorld Cares program visited 200 third- and fourth-graders at Hillsdale with an alligator, lemurs and much more.

The SeaWorld Cares educational outreach program teaches kids about ocean conservation, animal rescue and rehabilitation, and how people's everyday actions can make safer habitats for animals. During the assembly, the SeaWorld education team also led a mock sea turtle rescue with student volunteers.
