Animal Conservation & SeaWorld Cares
Animal rescue programs
In collaboration with the government and other members of accredited stranding networks, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment operates one of the world’s most respected programs to rescue ill and injured marine animals, with the goal to rehabilitate and return to the ocean.
SeaWorld animal experts have helped more than 22,000 animals in need - ill, injured, orphaned and abandoned - for more than four decades.
The SeaWorld Busch Gardens Conservation Fund®
In addition to direct support of hundreds of environmental, research and conservation projects, the company provides millions of dollars in cash, support and human resources to the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund. A registered non-profit conservation foundation, the Fund has granted more than $9 million to wildlife research and conservation projects that protect wildlife and wild places. The Fund commits 100% of donations to on-the-ground wildlife conservation efforts.
The Fund also provides an outlet for visitors to the parks, as well as the general public, to do their part to help protect wildlife. The Fund commits 100 percent of donations to on-the-ground wildlife conservation.
Education is a cornerstone of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. Half a billion people have passed through the gates of a SeaWorld park since 1964, and each has benefitted from educational experiences intended to inspire a deeper understanding, respect and desire to protect all wildlife.
SeaWorld’s educational impact extends into homes and classrooms across the world through innovative programs such as instructional field trips, national awards programs, classroom resources, and one of the largest and most used animal databases on the Internet. In addition to that remarkable figure are the countless informal teaching experiences inside the parks: educators, show and exhibit narrations, and interpretive and interactive graphics.
