SeaWorld Orlando Opens its First and All New Coral Rescue Center to Park Guests - One of the Largest Public-Facing Facilities Dedicated to Coral Conservation in the Country

13 Jun 2023

SeaWorld Orlando has opened its first and all new Coral Rescue Center to park guests. It is one of the largest public-facing facilities dedicated to coral conservation in the country. The state-of-the-art rescue facility provides the public with a unique opportunity to observe and interact with coral biologists as they carry out daily husbandry for “at risk" Florida corals.  The Center provides an important way to view living corals up close, learn more about conservation, and understand the steps everyone can take to make a difference in ocean health.  Park guests can marvel at the hundreds of living coral colonies and 15 different species – many of which are listed as threatened under the U.S. Endangered Species Act.  The Center is part of SeaWorld’s ongoing commitment to coral conservation as the private and public sector come together to help save the Florida coral reef.  The Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida is the partner of the coral rescue centre initiative.
