American Humane, the country's first national humane organization and the world's largest certifier of animal welfare and well-being, announced that Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, Calif., has earned the Humane Certified™ seal of approval for its animal encounters and attractions, demonstrating the good welfare and treatment given to the animals in its care. This includes dolphins, sea lions, alligators, sharks, tigers and many other incredible species.
"Congratulations to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom for their certification achievement," said Robin Ganzert, Ph.D., American Humane president and CEO. "With Americans increasingly concerned about the treatment of animals, it's vital to bring all zoos, aquariums and parks to higher levels of animal welfare and to recognize those that are upholding these standards."
"As a unique combination animal and thrill park, it is incredibly special and important to receive this designation from American Humane," said Dianne Cameron, animal care director, at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. "This certification further establishes our commitment to providing the highest standards of care for the animals at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom."
