Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network
The Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network (TMMSN) and SeaWorld San Antonio announced a significant expansion of their partnership in helping to rescue and assist marine mammals along the Texas Coast. Over a three year period, SeaWorld San Antonio is committing approximately $1.1 million in additional funding and resources, including: SeaWorld animal care professionals and veterinarians dedicated to work with TMMSN; as well as a new state of the art facility at SeaWorld San Antonio to provide 24-hour care for sick and stranded animals that need long term rehabilitation. This facility will ease the burden on TMMSN’s resources when rescued animals are in need of long term care.

Marine & Ocean Conservation with the Humane Society of the United States
SeaWorld and the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) have partnered to work together as advocates for the ocean and its animals. Together we will focus on ending commercial killing of whales, seals and other marine animals. Our mutual efforts include leveraging SeaWorld’s world-class rescue, research and resources, protecting coral reefs, preventing over-exploitation of fish and protecting our oceans for future generations.
SeaWorld and OCEARCH are teaming up to bring our oceans to you. Through research, conservation, education, and policy, SeaWorld and OCEARCH remind us of our common love for the sea. Together, we will continue to increase our understanding of marine life while inspiring others to join in the efforts to save species and their habitats.
