SeaWorld opposes the cruel and inhumane treatment and slaughter of dolphins in the annual drive fishery in Taiji, Japan. Despite our public opposition, a small but vocal group of activists continue to mislead people into thinking that dolphins from the hunt end up at SeaWorld. Hear more about our position directly from the executive who oversees the care of all the animals at SeaWorld Orlando. SeaWorld is a member of the Alliance of Accredited Marine Mammal Parks & Aquariums. Join us, and AAMMPA, in our opposition to the slaughter of dolphins at www.ammpa.org

This adorable sandhill crane chick was only 3-4 days old when a Florida resident found it abandoned and brought it to SeaWorld for proper care. Amazingly, the chick was in perfect health, but too young to survive on its own. The Aviculture team paired the chick with an adult crane to learn specific crane behaviors so it could eventually be returned to the wild!
