Commitment to Animal Rescue, Rehabilitation & Return
SeaWorld has come to the aid over 40,000 ill, injured and orphaned animals in need. Available 24/7/365, the dedicated team of animal care, veterinary and animal rescue experts will always answer the call to help an animal.
SeaWorld's legacy of animal rescue spans more than 50 years. In that time, SeaWorld’s Animal Rescue Teams have helped rescue more than 40,000 sick, injured and orphaned animals in need. None of this would be possible without the continued support of our partner agencies, park guests, Pass Members, and dedicated ambassadors, as well as the people across the globe taking action to protect these amazing animals and their habitats. Our teams are on call 24/7/365, partnering with multiple government agencies, conservationists, stranding networks, zoological facilities and others to rescue and help animals in need of care, always with the goal of rehabilitating them and returning them to the wild.
When we say 24/7, we mean it!
Our teams work around the clock to ensure every animal with us receives the care that it needs – no matter what. Learn more about what our rescue teams have been up to.
In partnership with state, local & federal agencies, stranding networks, zoos & aquariums, and many others, SeaWorld Rescue Teams are on call 24/7 to help ill, injured or orphaned animals in need of expert care with the goal of rehabilitation & returning them to the wild.
No two animal rescues are ever the same. Our inventive animal rescue, veterinary and care experts have created prosthetics, healed cracked turtle shells, invented specialized wet suits, nursed orphans, and more.
Our goal is always to rehabilitate and return rescued animals to their natural environment. The few with conditions deemed non-releasable, as decided by independent groups or regulatory agencies, get lifelong care with us or at an accredited facility.
