Bottlenose Dolphin

Our Story

Dolphins Plus stranding response began in 1987. Today, as Dolphins Plus Marine Mammal Responder, we remain the only whale and dolphin rescue team covering 10,000 square miles of habitat in the Florida Keys. The only one. Additionally, our specialized interactions allow people to connect with dolphins on a deeper level, creating lifelong advocates and stewards of the sea. DPMMR's goal is to allow the general public to connect with our amazing resident Atlantic bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus), so that they are inspired to protect their wild counterparts and the marine habitat.
