    We join in the Declaration of Interdependence will you join us?

  • Communities are reflective and knowledgeable about their work and its impact

    • What affects the land, affects the ocean, toxins in the environment are a shared risk for both humans and dolphins

  • What is man-created and impacts dolphins, humans, plants and other life forms may travel by wind, water or other methods thousands of miles.
  • We are interdependent with marine mammals and are responsible for using our awareness, compassion and intelligence to ensure their survival and the conservation of their habitat.
  • A safe home for dolphins is a safe place for humans to visit.

  • Two major impediments to conserving marine ecosystems are (1) a lack of understanding of the basic processes governing the essential features of these systems and (2) ineffective transfer of new scientific knowledge to the public and to policy makers.

  • We work with integrity and in collaboration with volunteers, backers, independent researchers and scientists, behaviorists, children and schols, the general public, tour operators, recreational boaters and fisherpeople.

  • We possess a deep commitment to bring nobility, honor and Aloha to non-profit management, conscious of cost effectiveness, program effectiveness, internal accountability for each program, and to use the material support dollars we are given responsibly and well.
