We need your help.
COVID-19 has changed all of our lives. At Dolphin Quest health and safety always come first. Dolphin Quest locations on the islands of Hawaii, Oahu and Bermuda suspended all onsite programs for the public in March to protect our Crew members and the public. Although many businesses have also had to close their doors, Dolphin Quest must continue to provide the necessary daily onsite optimal care to ensure the physical needs and social and mental well-being of our dolphins is upheld. This includes dietary requirements of more than 3000 pounds of restaurant-quality fish weekly and maintaining essential operational infrastructure supported now by small rotating core teams of highly skilled Crew Members. Due to local shelter at home orders, this will extend through this month or longer.
For more than thirty years, our onsite guest experiences have covered the cost of state-of-the-art animal care, staffing, facility maintenance, and funded educational programming, crucial scientific studies and marine conservation initiatives. Without the revenue from our interactive encounters, we cannot continue to support our Mission. This is an unprecedented struggle we never could have anticipated, and we are asking for your help.
Please help us continue our Mission of setting the gold standard in animal care, environmental education and ocean conservation. Help keep our talented and devoted team of marine mammal specialists, veterinarians, educators, operations crew and marine mammal scientists at work. Support our complimentary virtual programs to quarantined, home-bound students and Make-A-Wish children who may not be able to wait until the COVID-19 threat is over to realize their dream of meeting our dolphins. Your support ensures that leading scientists continue their fight on the front lines to preserve and protect our ocean habitats and wildlife.
