ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- SeaWorld today announced the start of Inside Look, an annual experience that brings guests behind-the-scenes to learn more about animal care at one of the world's foremost zoological organizations, visiting places and meeting people not generally available to the public. The event runs on select weekends in January at SeaWorld Orlando, San Antonio, and San Diego parks. Inside Look experiences are included in regular park admission fees. 

"At SeaWorld, we are just as passionate about what we do behind the scenes as what guests see when they come to the park," said Marc Swanson, Chief Executive Officer of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, Inc. "Inside Look is our opportunity to show guests what goes into delivering exceptional care to our animals and how what we learn from them here can help protect and preserve their species in the wild. This experience will also show guests our heart ? and we hope it inspires others to act for the protection of the world's animals and their environments."  

"As the oldest and largest certifier of humane treatment of animals, we are thrilled that SeaWorld is bringing guests behind the scenes for an 'Inside Look' at their world-class operations and how their animals are cared for and protected," said Dr. Robin Ganzert, President and CEO of American Humane. "Educating the public about the need for conservation, in which SeaWorld is a pioneer, is the first in many steps to preventing species extinction."

Each SeaWorld Park will offer some combination of the following experiences as part of Inside Look:

World Class Animal Care, Accredited and Regulated by Experts

SeaWorld Inside Look offers a unique opportunity to go behind the scenes of one of the world's foremost zoological organizations. Its team of more than 1,000 animal specialists maintain the highest standards of animal welfare and veterinary care for one the largest zoological collections in the world. 

SeaWorld is regulated by various government authorities focused on animal welfare. For example, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal Plant Health Inspection Service performs routine, unannounced visits to SeaWorld to ensure adherence to federal standards and regulations. The visits include a review of the physical premises, records, husbandry practices, program of veterinary care, and animal handling procedures, to ensure that SeaWorld meets and/or exceeds the required standard of care. SeaWorld is also regulated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric (NOAA) National Marine Fisheries, the primary federal agency responsible for the stewardship of living ocean resources and the marine habitats on which they rely. NOAA enforces guidelines set out in laws such as the Marine Mammal Protection Act and the Endangered Species Act.

SeaWorld is also accredited by third party organizations including the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA) and the Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks and Aquariums (AMMPA). Achieving and maintaining accreditation from these groups is a rigorous evaluation process in areas that extend beyond the scope of government regulatory agencies. For example, reviews of social settings, team training, habitat enrichment, medical facility, food and water preparation, guest interactions, education programs and more. SeaWorld has also earned the Humane Certifiedtm seal from American Humane, the world's largest certifier of animal welfare. Reviews and accreditations by these organizations represent the highest standards of care and welfare for specific species.

Dedicated to Marine Animal and Ecosystem Conservation

The commitment of SeaWorld extends beyond the animals in residence. The SeaWorld Rescue team is on call 24x7 to help animals anywhere they are needed. The team logged a combined total of over 50,000 miles in 2021 to rescue animals in need; that's the equivalent of circling the Earth over six times. The team has helped more than 39,000 marine animals, making it one of the largest marine animal rescue organizations in the world.

SeaWorld also advances the science of marine animal health through the study of animals in its care, partnerships with leading academic institutions, and with SeaWorld Conservation Fund grants to organizations focused on marine animal rescue and rehabilitation, conservation education, habitat protection and species research. Since 2003, Fund grants have been made to support 541 different marine-specific conservation projects on all seven continents.
