SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment is one of the world’s foremost zoological organizations and a global leader in animal welfare, training, husbandry, and veterinary care. We collectively care for what it believes is one of the largest zoological collections in the world and has helped lead advances in the care of animals.
Assuring the health and well-being of the animals in our zoological parks is a responsibility our skilled professionals take extremely seriously. Our advanced programming applies a broad range of best practices based upon behavioral enrichment, preventive health, veterinary medicine and facilities design and management. Our programs and policies are affirmed by numerous federal and state laws, including the Animal Welfare Act, Endangered Species Act, Marine Mammal Protection Act and other statues. The quality of care we provide these animals is further evidenced through the stringent accreditation process of two of the foremost professional zoological organizations to which we belong: The Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks & Aquariums.
Few animals have engaged the public imagination more than marine mammals: killer whales, beluga whales, dolphins, walruses, otters, manatees and sea lions. SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment’s goal is to inspire guests to care for and protect these amazing creatures.
