Our standards of care

Our parks, policies and programmes are overseen by many federal and state laws including The Animal Welfare Act, The Marine Mammal Protection Act and The Endangered Species Act.

We operate under the authority of multiple government agencies and are regularly inspected for compliance with federal and state law.

The SeaWorld Parks are accredited by all major zoological bodies.

SeaWorld Orlando is accredited by the Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks and Aquariums (AMMPA). AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums undergo a rigorous review that includes a detailed application as well as a multiple day on-site inspection by a team of experts from around the country.

SeaWorld Orlando is also accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and American Humane as are Discovery Cove and Busch Gardens.
