SeaWorld Orlando is a theme park and marine zoological park hybrid. It is located on the outskirts of Orlando, and owned and operated by SeaWorld Entertainment. Combined with Discovery Cove and Aquatica, it forms SeaWorld Parks and Resorts Orlando. The entire entertainment complex consists of the three parks and a wide range of neighboring hotels. In 2015, it was ranked the tenth most visited amusement park in the United States and twenty-second worldwide. Although it has publicly come under fire in the last few years for its captivity practices, many experts have pointed out the rehabilitation that SeaWorld strives for. There is also a direct link between people caring for what they can see, so the more that we can see and learn about animals in captivity, the more likely we are as a society to work to preserve them.
