Southern California teachers can enjoy SeaWorld for free this year.
SeaWorld San Diego is offering teachers a special deal: A free Fun Card, which gives them unlimited visits to the park for 2011.
The offer is to recognize teachers for their role in educating the region's youth, SeaWorld said.
"Education is one of our core values at SeaWorld and more than 100,000 students pass through camp and field trip programs every year," said John Reilly, the park's president. "We know how important a strong educational foundation is for our youth and we want to thank teachers for their devotion."
Southern California K-12 credentialed teachers are eligible for the SeaWorld Teacher Appreciation Program. The offer is available through April 30.

SeaWorld is also is also sponsoring an essay contest, which is open to third and fourth grade classes from Southern California elementary schools. About conservation, the essay contest runs from March 15 to May 3. The class with the winning essay will receive a VIP field trip to the park.
