We take responsibility for the animals in our care and understand the role we must play in the conservation of endangered creatures and habitats around the world. We work to world-class welfare standards through our animal care network, and we support the SEA LIFE Trust in its mission to protect marine life and ocean environments.

We're committed to the highest standards of animal welfare, wherever we have creatures in our care. In addition to owning SEA LIFE, the world’s largest aquarium brand, we also own and operate Chessington World of Adventures Resort in the UK, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo and WILD LIFE Hamilton Island in Australia.
