Conservation

Conserving and Caring for the World We Share

SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment™ inspired more than 24 million guests in 2012 to celebrate and conserve the natural world. Through up-close animal encounters, educational exhibits and innovative entertainment, our guests leave with a heightened sensitivity to the world around them and an awareness of the plight of animals in the wild. The parks' commitment to research and conservation also has led to advances in the care of animals in both zoological facilities and wild populations.

We focus our support for conservation in four areas: 1) the rescue of ill, orphaned, and injured animals, 2) funding and other forms of support for research, 3) funding and direct action in conservation and 4) education and interpretation of animals. SeaWorld has spent millions of dollars conserving wild animals and wild places, as well as supporting critical conservation work on every continent. It’s important to note also that millions of people each year learn about animals in our SeaWorld parks, as well as the importance of conservation and wildlife preservation. We also partner with and support numerous organizations including National Wildlife Federation, World Wildlife Fund and The Nature Conservancy.

The SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund

The SeaWorld® & Busch Gardens® Conservation Fund is just one way our guests can get involved. The Fund supports wildlife research, habitat protection, animal rescue and conservation education in the U.S. and countries all over the world. The Fund provides an outlet for park visitors to help protect wildlife and, because SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment provides all administrative and development costs as well as staffing and infrastructure, commits 100 percent of donations to on-the-ground wildlife conservation efforts.
