Our partnership with Anheuser-Busch (now known as Anheuser-Busch InBev) was focused on supporting CI’s biodiversity conservation efforts.
In September 2004, Anheuser-Busch supported a workshop in Wuhan, China which brought together leading scientists to develop an action plan to save China’s critically endangered river dolphin, the Baiji (Lipotes vexillifer), from extinction.
Also in 2004, Anheuser-Busch committed support to CI’s work to develop and implement a wildlife trade strategy in southwest Cambodia through the Sea World/Busch Gardens Conservation Fund.
From 2002-2004, the SeaWorld/Busch Gardens partnership with CI helped to protect areas in Brazil that are the habitat of a range of bird species including the Hyacinth Macaw, Blue Fronted Amazon and the Crowned Eagle.
In 2000, Anheuser-Busch’s Discovery Cove agreed to support a continuing project to establish a conservation corridor in the Cerrado and Pantanal regions of Brazil, while helping to protect several endangered bird species in the area.
In 1999, Anheuser-Busch supported CI’s efforts to establish a canopy walkway in Palawan, Philippines, encouraging ecotourism ventures in the region.
Anheuser-Busch worked with CI and supported several components of a project to develop a model ecotourism site in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, the Una Ecopark and Canopy Walkway, which was completed in 1998.
In 1994, SeaWorld and CI collaborated in establishing a management plan for the Upper Gulf of California ecosystem.
