News from the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund

6 Jul

Hey Guys,

The SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Conservation Fund will be awarding grants of more than $1 million this year to help animals in need and endangered species around the world. Since its creation eight years ago, the Fund has granted more than $8 million to protect wildlife and wild places like big cats in Africa.

The Fund has approved grants to more than 100 wildlife protection projects including programs to reintroduce endangered cheetahs to the African wild.

Taken from the press release, Brand Andrews, president and executive director of the fund said:

“From big cats to penguins, these species are in dire need of help. SeaWorld and Busch Gardens work to educate and inspire guests to care about the plight of these animals, and these grants from the Fund support our conservation partners working in the field,

“Together, we can make a world of difference for these extraordinary species that share our world.”

The big cats of the world are disappearing. There are fewer than 12,000 cheetahs throughout Africa and less than half the number of lions that were there only 50 years ago. The Fund is supporting seven conservation organizations around the world that work to stop the decline of big cats and identify conservation strategies for their future.
