The Alliance introduces its International Code of Best Practices for Dolphin Facilities addressing animal care, education programming, scientific advancement, responsible in-water interactive programs, and the conservation of dolphins in the wild. The intent for this new Code is to motivate exceptional care of these magnificent animals worldwide.
Members of the Alliance represent the greatest body of international expertise about, and experience with, the care of dolphins in zoological parks and aquariums. The public, tour operators, cruise lines and travel agents can be assured that accredited facilities meet the Code, cherish their dolphins, and place the highest priority on the dolphins’ health and welfare. The Code may also be used as a benchmark to evaluate facilities that are not accredited.
