Learn more about how you can swim with dolphins at Cabo Dolphins Marine Center, which is American Humane certified for excellent, humane treatment of animals.
Increased efforts are being made to provide humane treatment of animals in interactive tourist encounters, like swimming with dolphins and other marine mammals. This highly sought-after experience often comes with the risk of supporting an institution that does not meet the needs of the animals in their facility. The best indicator that a company is providing excellent care for their animals is whether or not they have been given the stamp of approval from American Humane.
Humane Conservation Certification
American Humane has created a program designed by scientists, veterinarians, and wildlife experts to encourage and enforce higher standards in animal facilities like zoos, aquariums, and centers with interactive animal encounters. Facilities that meet these standards of excellence and show that they are contributing to conservation and rehabilitation efforts are eligible to receive the Humane Conservation certification.
This certification not only raises the standards for animal facilities all over the world, but it provides a way for travelers to know whether they’ve chosen a trustworthy company for their encounter. Animal lovers can enjoy these incredible experiences in good conscience that these animals are being taken care of and these animal facilities efforts to educate the public can continue to grow.
