    Conservation. It's in our Nature.

    For more than 40 years, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment - encompassing

    SeaWorld, Busch Gardens and Discovery Cove - have initiated and supported

    wildlife conservation, research, and education at home and around

    the world. Upon visiting a SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment facility, many guests are inspired to help protect the animals they encounter and get involved with wildlife conservation. The SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund was, in part, created to fulfill that desire.


    Launched in 2003, the Fund was created to provide guests with an easy, direct way to get involved and make a difference. While the Fund itself is relatively new, the parks have been committed to wildlife conservation for decades. The Fund intends to continue this legacy and create an even greater one.


    A 501 ©(3) non-profit private foundation, the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund focuses its resources in four strategic areas: Species Research, Habitat Protection, Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation, and Conservation Education. Since its launch, the Fund has granted over $9 million to more than 500 projects in countries around the world. The Fund's grantees are diverse, including global organizations such as World Wildlife Fund, The Nature Conservancy, and Conservation International along with smaller, grassroots organizations.
