Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute (HSWRI) is a non-profit scientific research organization committed to conserving and renewing marine life to ensure a healthier planet. Our team of experts provides innovative and objective scientific solutions to challenges threatening ocean health and marine life in our rapidly changing world.
The Institute began in 1963 when Milton C. Shedd, one of the visionary founders of SeaWorld, recognized the importance of developing and nurturing a non-profit research foundation with the vision “to return to the sea some measure of the benefits derived from it.”
In the following years, SeaWorld parks opened in multiple locations including San Diego, California and Orlando, Florida providing opportunities for collaborative research on animals in zoological parks that would complement the non-profit foundation’s field research on marine wildlife.
The research foundation was later rededicated as the Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute in honor of Dr. Carl Leavitt Hubbs’ inspiring achievements in ocean science and education.
