A Commitment to Conservation
The SeaWorld Animal Rehabilitation Program is an important part of SeaWorld's commitment to conservation, research, and education. Through this program, the SeaWorld animal departments rescue, treat, shelter, and release stranded animals. The main objective of the Rescue and Rehabilitation Program is to return rehabilitated animals to the wild.
All SeaWorld parks and Busch Gardens parks participate in the program. The ability to rescue and rehabilitate animals is the result of years of experience caring for animals at the parks.
A Valuable Scientific Resource
Rescued animals provide insight into their biology and ecology. This information adds to the pool of knowledge necessary to conserve threatened and endangered species. For more information on the benefits of the Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation Program, see Benefits of Rescue Program.
