Research and Conservation

  • Science Supporting Conservation

    Scientific research conducted at SeaWorld is carried out by our own research staff, and by scientists from nationally and internationally-renowned universities and research organizations such as UCLA, the San Diego Zoo and the Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute. We publish the results of our research in peer-reviewed journals, making it available to scientists, those who manage animal populations, and other interested people around the world. SeaWorld scientists have authored or co-authored hundreds of published papers.
  • SeaWorld Supports Killer Whale Research and Conservation

    SeaWorld help found and continues to support the Killer Whale Research and Conservation Program (KWRCP), led by The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF). Support of the KWRCP is part of SeaWorld’s $10 million pledge to fund research and conservation for killer whales in the wild – the largest private commitment of its kind. The KWRCP focuses on three strategies: increasing prey availability; improving habitat quality; and strengthening management through crucial research.
