SeaWorld parks have helped animals in need - ill, injured, orphaned, and abandoned - for more than four decades. More than 22,000 animals have been rescued by the park’s animal experts including whales, dolphins, seals, sea lions, manatees, sea turtles and birds.
This is the equivalent of helping one animal a day - every day - for over 45 years. The majority of these animals are successfully treated by SeaWorld veterinarians, rehabilitated and returned to the wild. Our parks’ commitment to research and conservation has led to advances in the care of animals in both zoological facilities and wild populations
SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment contributed more than $2.5 million, in 2012 alone, to ensure the sustainability of animal species in the wild.
SeaWorld also supports more than 100 environmental organizations worldwide, ranging from local community initiatives to global wildlife research and conservation programs. These partnerships allow the parks to share animal expertise, strengthen on-the-ground efforts to protect wildlife, and educate millions of people. Just a few of these valued partners include National Wildlife Federation, Conservation International, World Wildlife Fund, The Nature Conservancy, and National Geographic Society.
