A Little More About Who We Are:
When the editors, designers and other contributors first conceived of this website we decided not to post our names or those of employers for
1) We wanted the site to be independent and not to be about (or sponsored by) any particular facility.
2) We wanted the focus to be about the animals and all the people who dedicate their lives to care for and train them, not just about a few
particular people who contribute material.
3) We spend a lot of time at work answering questions, letters, phone calls and emails regarding our jobs, animals, etc. With all the traffic the site
gets, we did not want to have this same situation follow us home. (While we certainly enjoy teaching people about our animals and career field,
many of us don't even tell people what I do when we are out shopping, relaxing, etc., to avoid spending all of our free time "talking shop"). After
all, one of the main purposes of this site is to answer those questions in a way that everyone can have equal access to the information.
How to Contact Us: Unfortunately, due to staffing restrictions, we are unable provide personalized interviews for student projects,
individual career counseling, etc. We cannot respond to these types of requests. For all business related correspondence please send an
email message to: DolphinTrainer01@aol.com or write to us at:
