  • They have studied at prestigious universities in Mexico since Delphinus has collaboration agreements with some of Mexico’s best academic institutions and research centers for marine life.
  • They are part of an elite of animal health professionals given that there are very few places like Delphinus that have the facilities, technology and trained personnel to attend to the animals’ needs 24/7, 365 days a year.
  • Veterinarians and researchers visit us from countries such as Holland, Spain, United States, Colombia, Argentina and Chile because of the prestige we have gained at a national and international level.
  • We give special importance to medical training, during which medical samples are taken from the dolphins for testing: blood, faeces, exudate and gastric content, ultrasound and endoscopic studies. This helps guarantee the dolphin’s integrity without having to handle them in a risky manner.
