My Story: Rainbow was born in 1980 and arrived at DRC with Mr. Parrot in 1992. She soon caught the attention of Merlin, another Blue and Gold Macaw. The two have since become inseparable. They tend to be protective of each other.

Our Mission - Through education, research and rescue, Dolphin Research Center promotes peaceful coexistence, cooperation and communication between marine mammals, humans and the environment we share with the well being of DRC's animals taking precedence.
