The Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks
and Aquariums has accredited the Dolphin Discovery Grand Cayman following an
inspection on 13-14 January by William R. Winhall of SeaWorld, San Diego,
California, and William Hurley of the Georgia Aquarium.
The review team took into
consideration all criteria set forth in the association’s Accreditation Program
and the Alliance Standards and Guidelines, which have been accepted by both the
Accreditation Committee and the Alliance Board of Directors.
Alliance member facilities are
required to participate in a re-accreditation five years from the date of their
Dave Blasko, president of the
Alliance, said he was “delighted to welcome Dolphin Discovery Grand Cayman into
the Alliance and looked forward to working with the park’s professional staff
in the future.
The board very much appreciates
Dolphin Discovery’s long-term support and commitment to the Alliance.”
