We explore the behavior, habitat use, social lives, and communication skills of wild dolphins. In addition to gathering critical baseline data, we shed light on how the health of these top predators, and the conditions of the natural resources they depend upon, directly and indirectly, impact our own health and well-being.$5,625.02 donated of $35,000.00 goal
John Olguin has inspired many of us to pursue a life of personal and professional generosity, humanity, love and commitment to protect our oceans, the world around us, and our communities. His story is a wonderful example of perseverance and imagination so let’s share it with current and future generations everywhere.$500.00 donated of $12,500.00 goal
We are developing drones to provide us with a unique birds-eye view of dolphins, their movement patterns, behavior and more, without disturbing them. And because dolphins spent most of their time below the surface, we are also developing an underwater ROV so we can expand our observations into the underwater world. No doubt, new discoveries lie ahead.$0.00 donated of $10,000.00 goal

Some of the success stories
Meet the Scientist Lecture SeriesMeet the Scientist Lecture Series has been attracting world-class speakers and an average audience of 280 people, making it one of the most successful programs of its kind in Florida. The series is produced in collaboration with the Jupiter Environmental Research and Field Studies Academy (JERFSA), and supported by the Rotary Club Jupiter-Tequesta and the Jupiter Inlet District. Each season runs from October through April, with all events held at the Jupiter High School auditorium from 7 to 9 pm. All lectures are free and open to the public.
Dolphin Dialogues Radio ProgramBetween 2004 and 2014, we produced and broadcast almost 400 ninety-minute live radio shows dedicated to science, the environment, conservation and sustainability. By the last few years, the program, which had been generously supported by our local radio station WJTW, had tens of thousand of regular listeners in more than 15 countries. Forced off the air when the station was sold, we now continue our efforts to inform and educate the public through our blog, also called Dolphin Dialogues.
Protecting dolphins and the seas for future generations,
is the most beautiful thing
