Environmental Excellence Awards. With the National Science Teachers Association, the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Environmental Educator of the Year provides national recognition & funding to teachers making a difference for wildlife & wild places by inspiring a new generation. News and studies have shown alarming consequences of the growing threat of plastics to our oceans and wildlife. The Ocean Conservancy, a nonprofit environmental advocacy group, estimates that eight million metrics tons of plastics enter the ocean each year, on top of the estimated 150 million metric tons that currently circulate the planet. SeaWorld has been at the forefront of animal rescue and ocean conservation for more than five decades. J
ust part of those efforts is the reduction of single-use plastics. In fact, some SeaWorld parks removed single-use plastic straws and plastic shopping bags years, and in some cases, decades ago. In 2018, we were proud to announce that all 12 SeaWorld parks eliminated single-use plastic straws and plastic shopping bags, as part of our mission to protect animals and habitats worldwide. Renewable Energy. SeaWorld is continuing to invest in more renewable energy, as exemplified in part by the launch of a solar array at Aquatica San Diego, which is expected to generate approximately 80 to 90 percent of the park’s energy use. Reducing Waste and Emissions. SeaWorld has lowered its greenhouse gas emissions by nine percent from 2014 to 2017 and improved recycling of waste materials by more than 50 percent over the same period. The company has also implemented a range of water conservation efforts, including harvesting rainwater, reusing water for cooling buildings, and adapting landscapes to require less water.
