One of the most important ways that dolphin quest marine mammal specialists ensure the excellent health and well-being of our dolphin family is by making sure that every day of their lives is enriching and reinforcing. very simply, enrichment means enhancing an animal’s environment by making it fuller and more meaningful. fortunately, the ways in which we can enrich our dolphins are virtually limitless! every training session, and guest interaction can be enriching and motivating.

additionally, marine mammal specialists frequently and creatively use what are called eeds (environmental enrichment devices). eed’s are objects or stimuli that are added to the animals’ environment, giving them the opportunity to problem solve, explore, play, and be creative. some examples of eeds include food foraging puzzles, auditory stimuli like music, or toys, like the ring you see lono playing with here. while trainers are often lucky enough to get to join in the playtime, one of the highlights of strong enrichment program is the animals’ ability to invent and engage in “games” independently amongst themselves. they constantly amaze us with their ingenuity, creativeness and enthusiasm.

Bottlenose dolphins have a well-developed sense of vision. although dolphins can see very well both out of water and in clear, sun-lit water, they have little ability to distinguish color.
swipe ➡for entire photo. a bottlenose dolphin's rostrum is clearly marked from the forehead by a sharp crease, and the line of the mouth is curved up at the back.

That’s pepper in the back of the group. if you’ve read up on the 3 types of child temperaments then you’ll know what i mean when i say that our daughter is “slow to warm up”. she’s a little more shy, observant & cautious than most children. anyway! she was super scared to get in the water with the dolphins today but a friend of hers took her hand and walked with her towards the rest of the group. it was absolutely heart melting & i’m so glad my daughter has friends like these in her life. 🐬💙 #hawaii #waikoloa #bigisland #dolphins #dolphinquest #dolphinquesthawaii

One of my bucket list dreams came true while in bermuda. i got to swim with dolphins 🐬💦🌸 @dolphin_quest i am so in love with these beautiful creatures. i literally cried when i held them in my arms. they are so magical if you are lucky to spot one in the ocean... so to be able to swim with them and hold them and love on them.... my emotions were at an all time high. i would do it again in a heart beat. they are so loving and smart, definitely one of my favourite animals on planet earth. what is on your bucket list? #dolphins #adventure #dolphinquest #bermuda #blessed #family #lucky #workfromhome #workanywhere #myofficefortheday #entrepreneur #mompreneur #momboss #mombosslife #liveyourbestlife #dreamscometrue #bucketlist #livingmybestlife #liveyourbestlife #findingabundance

#tbt the goal of dolphin quest’s kids programs has always remained the same - to create a connection to nature and inspire children to care about marine animals. look at these clips from then and now and see the similarities! -

Dolphin quest hawaii at the @hiltonwaikoloavillage hosted o ka la public charter school in puna to be the educational experience of a lifetime and positive distraction from the displacement they are facing on the other side of the island. “they all need it,” says teacher deanna wentworth who has been evacuated to the pahoa shelter along with many of her students due to the lava activity on hawaii’s big island. this may be their last opportunity to gather as a classroom as the school year comes to a close.
our thoughts are with those affected by the lava activity on the big island. -
