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.
Shark Rescue & Conservation with Guy Harvey
World-renowned artist and marine conservationist Guy Harvey is actively working with SeaWorld to help raise awareness on protecting sharks and their natural habitats. The Guy Harvey Research Institute estimates that up to 73 million sharks per year are killed for the fin trade alone. SeaWorld has helped with his team’s research on shark-tagging expeditions, as well as informing the public about shark conservation through storytelling within our Mako hyper-coaster queue and realm.
Oceanic Research with OCEARCH
SeaWorld and OCEARCH are focused on the global conservation of marine animals and the world’s oceans. We’re both purpose-driven organizations; we love the ocean and want to ensure an abundant resource for future generations. Together, we will focus on bringing everyday people closer to the water by sharing real-time data, content, and park experiences.
Over 350 Publications
Our company is committed to advancing knowledge and conservation. This bibliography lists the contributions to scientific literature we have made over the course of our history: more than 350 peer-reviewed articles, book chapters and books (authored in whole or part) by our team members, on a wide variety of marine and terrestrial animals in numerous arenas of investigation.
Killer Whale Research
These studies reflect the knowledge, skill, commitment and passion of our staff. Beyond these direct contributions, still more manuscripts were authored by outside researchers that utilized our animals and data. Those outside studies benefited from access to our animals in a controlled environment that is impossible to duplicate in the wild.
