Conservation Efforts

We are on a mission – and it’s big. From park to planet, we are committed to supporting and finding ways to protect our environment for a better future.

SeaWorld is committed to protecting the environment and preserving our future by inspiring others to act . SeaWorld San Antonio and our company actively supports environmental conservation by providing financial and scientific support to organizations focused on animal rescue and rehabilitation, conservation education, habitat protection, and species research. Additionally, the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund has donated more than $14 million, supporting animal conservation projects on all seven continents across the globe, including coral reef restoration, preventing coastal erosion, habitat protection and simply keeping our oceans clean.

We actively support efforts protecting our oceans and coral reefs, seeking sustainable food sources for park guests and our animal, as well as our on-going animal rescues.

    Sustainable Fish for Animal Ambassadors

    SeaWorld is dedicated to healthy food sources for all of the animals at SeaWorld, Aquatica and Discovery Point.  The SeaWorld team is committed to sustainable sourcing of fish fed to the fish-eating (piscivorous) animals. This includes purchasing food from responsibly managed fisheries that we closely review for nutritional quality and safety. SeaWorld avoids purchasing fish that have been caught or farmed in ways that harm other marine life or the environment.

    Sustainable Food Sourcing and Humane Farming

    As part of our efforts to inspire our guests to protect the world we live in, SeaWorld is dedicated to responsible food sourcing. As part of that policy, we commit to only provide humanely raised and sustainably harvested food at SeaWorld, Aquatica and Discovery Point. Here are a few of the commitments our company has made towards sustainable and humane food sourcing:

    • A continuing commitment to serving seafood sourced from either sustainably managed fisheries or aquaculture in all park restaurants;
    • Expand park menus to include more plant-based options for guests.
    • A commitment to source produce from local farms when and where possible.
    • A commitment to sustainably source all coffee served to our guests and ambassadors.
    • A commitment to purchase all commodity pork cuts, such as ribs and loins, from suppliers who have announced a commitment to humane farming practices like those who have published targets for conversion to group sow housing.
    • All eggs, including shell and liquid eggs, will be sourced from cage-free chickens by the end of 2017.

Rising Tide

SeaWorld is an active partner in helping researchers breed aquacultured fish, a sustainable alternative to wild fish collection, which can stress wild fish populations and damage the coral reefs where they live.
