Goals of the SeaWorld Education Department
- Based on a long-term commitment to education, SeaWorld strives to provide an
enthusiastic, imaginative, and intellectually stimulating atmosphere to help students
reach their academic potential. Specifically, our goals are...
- To instill in students of all ages an appreciation for science and a respect for all
living creatures and natural environments.
- To conserve our valuable natural resources by increasing awareness of the
interrelationships of humans and the marine environment.
- To increase students' basic competencies in science and other disciplines.
- To provide an educational resource for the entire community.
"For in the end we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we
understand. We will understand only what we are taught." - B. Dioum
The ocean and its inhabitants fascinate us, and this fascination leads to a quest for
knowledge and deeper understanding. Although it is our intent to provide you with the most
accurate and up-to-date information available, it is possible that some of this
information may change as research continues and new discoveries are made. The nature of
science is ever-changing.
