dolfin ENCOUNTER:  Learn about the Florida Keys’ sensitive Eco-system and marine life in an up-close encounter with an Atlantic bottlenose dolfin. Designed to inspire awareness and promote conservation, marine biologists at the dolfin Connection provide a unique educational experience sure to create a lifetime of memories.

Finding ways to help endangered marine life is an important function of the dolfin Connection. By studying dolfin behavior – such as reproductive habits – the staff collects valuable data that can be used in studies to help other endangered aquatic creatures.
