SeaWorld's Conservation Efforts

From habitat protection and supporting ocean health initiatives to our many rescue and rehabilitation efforts SeaWorld is part of conservation projects across the globe. This is our mission and we want to inspire others to take action and join us in the efforts to save wild animals and wild places. We focus our conservation support in four key areas: The rescue of ill, orphaned and injured animals; Supporting research; Funding and direct action in conservation; and Inspiring animal encounters.

SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund

SeaWorld protects animals across the globe and the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund is an important part of that. The Fund has granted more than $14 million to over 1,000 projects in 60 countries and on all 7 continents.
