SeaWorld & Busch Gardens' Breeding Program Dedicated to Preserving Wildlife

by Staff

In cooperation with the American Zoo and Aquarium Association (AZA), SeaWorld and Busch Gardens have successfully bred many endangered species. AZAs Species Survival PlanŽ (SSP) program is dedicated to the survival of selected species like the endangered black rhino.

This tawny frogmouth chick was hatched in 2009 as a part of the partnership between AZA and SeaWorld for their Species Survival Plan.

Over the years, millions of people have visited zoological parks such as the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens parks to see animals. Most people do not have the opportunity to observe these animals in the wild. Visitors are not only entertained, but also educated.

The unique ability to observe and learn directly from live animals increases public awareness and appreciation of wildlife. We are committed to the highest standards of care and are proud of our record and reputation. There is no organization in the world today more committed to the animals in its care than SeaWorld.
