SeaWorld Announces 2019 Rescue Totals

They do not get enough credit for all the amazing conservation work they do and their rescue efforts. Look at things objectively and you can see that good work is done on behalf of the animals.



Legacy of helping injured, ill and stranded animals part of SeaWorld’s DNA

WHAT: Continuing a five-decade legacy of helping injured, ill and abandoned animals along San Diego’s coastline, SeaWorld San Diego’s Rescue Team came to the aid of nearly 900 animals in 2019, giving them a second chance at life! The team has rescued 171 sea lions, 20 northern elephant seals, eight harbor seals, four Guadalupe fur seals, four dolphins, one pygmy sperm whale and one sea turtle. In addition to animals rescued along the local coastline, this year SeaWorld San Diego is giving expert, round-the-clock care to an orphaned northern sea otter pup named Cinder found stranded in Alaska. The park is also providing a permanent home for three pilot whales that were rescued following a mass stranding in Florida in 2012. Without SeaWorld’s help, these animals would not have survived.

In anticipation of next year’s rescue season, SeaWorld’s Rescue Team is already making sure all rescue gear and supplies are ready to go. SeaWorld would also like to remind members of the public to keep a safe distance from animals on the beach and to call the park’s hotline if they see one that appears to be ill, injured or abandoned. The park’s hotline is monitored 24/7 and can be reached at (800) 541-SEAL.


BACKGROUND: Since 1965, SeaWorld San Diego has rescued more than 20,000 animals, with sea lions, seals and marine birds comprising the vast majority of those animals rescued. The park’s Rescue Team also routinely comes to the aid of dolphins, whales and sea turtles. Marine animals such as seals, sea lions, sea otters, dolphins, whales, sea turtles and seabirds may strand for a variety of reasons: illness, injury, exhaustion or separation from their mother. Two of the most common conditions are malnutrition and dehydration. In addition, animals also may become entangled in nets, ropes or fishing line; accidentally ingest plastic or other foreign objects; suffer habitat loss, which occurs as a result of human development, over harvesting of natural resources; or oil spills. The SeaWorld family of parks combined has rescued more than 35,000 animals in need over the last 55 years. The goal of the program has always been to rehabilitate rescued animals and return them to the wild, giving them a second chance at life. Every visit to a SeaWorld park helps support its animal rescue program.
