We saw that SeaWorld San Antonio had three whales die in six months. Is something wrong with the animals or the care they are receiving?

We were all saddened by these deaths, especially the animal care team that spent countless hours caring for these animals. After a review of each of these cases, none of the issues were related to each other, or to the care that the animals received, which is the care that SeaWorld is world-renowned for. SeaWorld is regulated by several federal and state agencies, including the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). We’re also accredited by several organizations, including the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and the Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks & Aquariums (AMMPA). We have the highest standard of care for all animals at our parks. You can read about that care here:How does SeaWorld care for their killer whales?.
