After Hurricane Irma, We Still Desperately Need Your Help!

Ever since Hurricane Irma stormed through the Florida Keys, we and the rest of the area have struggled to come back. We are making progress every day but, unfortunately, tourism continues to be far slower than it should be at this time of year. DRC depends on visitors coming through our doors in order to support the outstanding care and home that we provide for the dolphins and sea lions in our marine mammal family.

In the aftermath of the storm, many people who might have planned vacations in the Keys chose to go elsewhere this year. Local hotels are not at full capacity and some are still rebuilding and will not be able to welcome guests until sometime in the summer of 2018.

All of these conditions directly and negatively affect DRC's revenue. Expenses continue to mount and we need your help in order to sustain our dolphin and sea lion family and restore our Grassy Key facility.

To help DRC survive and recover, please choose a donation option below. Thank you!
