Our standards of care

The SeaWorld Parks, policies and programmes are overseen by many federal and state laws including The Animal Welfare Act, The Marine Mammal Protection Act and The Endangered Species Act.

The SeaWorld Parks operate under the authority of multiple government agencies and are regularly inspected for compliance with federal and state law.

SeaWorld Orlando, Discovery Cove and Busch Gardens Tampa Bay are all certified humane by American Humane’s Humane Conservation program and accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks and Aquariums. Accredited and certified zoos and aquariums undergo a rigorous review that includes a detailed application as well as a multiple day on-site inspection by a team of experts from around the country.

Animal Rescue & Rehabilitation

Our rescue teams are on call 24/7, 365 days a year, assisting animals that are orphaned, ill, injured or in need of expert care.

Our goal is to successfully rehabilitate animals for return to the wild. The small percentage of animals whose injuries are too debilitating to release, as deemed by the government, are given lifelong care.

SeaWorld is one of the largest marine animal rescue organisations in the world, and has helped more than 41,000 animals to date.

Our aim

Our aim is inspiring people to celebrate and conserve the natural world

Through up-close animal encounters, educational exhibits and innovative entertainment, we aim to heighten awareness to the world around us and increase understanding of the plight of animals in the wild.
