We develop our own lines of scientific research regarding the conservation and care of the marine environment. We also support scientific research conducted by other organisations.
Likewise, the positive effects of our dolphin therapy activity are supported by medical-scientific studies. The Delphus Association, with headquarters in Belgium, aims to study and protect the marine environment and in 2006 carried out the first study on the effects of dolphin therapy. This study included 11 children who were recorded by 5 TV cameras, 24 hours a day for a week. This study made it possible to assess the positive impact of the therapy on both the children and the dolphins themselves. The conclusions drawn from this study with a solid scientific basis and conducted in a context of medical professionals, support the positive effects of dolphin-assisted therapy bringing happiness to children and generating a better relationship between them and their environment, which is necessary to achieve their social integration.
