Make a general donation to DRC

There are some special areas where DRC can use your help:

Help DRC Support Those In Need

Help DRC support those in need

Dolphin Research Center has a long tradition of reaching out to children and adults with special needs. They have always held a warm place in our hearts. This is why we created the Pathways and Dolfriend programs. Your contribution will go a long way to help us continue to provide these programs.

The Pathway and Dolfriend programs are designed to reach out to those with special needs and provide them with an entrance into the dolphins’ world. Educational and recreational activities are introduced to help increase motivation and enhance the personalized experience. Unfortunately these programs run at a deficit with an annual loss of over $80,000!

Help us support our special needs programs.

You can help us celebrate a dolphin's birthday or anniversary at DRC by buying them their favorite treat - a big bucket of fish.  Each bucket costs $20.
