"We are excited and honored to have all three of our Dolphin Quest locations certified by American Humane," says Dr. Rae Stone, Marine Mammal Veterinarian and Co-Founder of Dolphin Quest. "No one loves dolphins more than we do, so this independent third-party review by the world's most respected humane organization is an excellent affirmation by animal experts that our animals are humanely cared for and are thriving under Dolphin Quest's care."
"Dolphin Quest's certification by the American Humane Conservation program signals the institution's commitment to voluntarily meeting the highest standards of humane, verifiable, and transparent animal care," said Dr. Robin Ganzert, president and CEO of American Humane. "We are proud to recognize this world-class institution with its prestigious Humane Certified™ seal of approval, demonstrating to the public Dolphin Quest's leadership as a responsible, humane steward of the remarkable animals living in its care."
