At the Dolphin Academy in Curaçao, the well-being of our dolphins is our top priority. Our approach to their care and training is rooted in a philosophy that emphasizes positive reinforcement. Whenever the dolphins respond correctly, they are rewarded; if they make a mistake, we simply try again or move on to a different request. This method, known as operant conditioning, allows us to teach and shape specific behaviors through a combination of praise, tactile interaction, and feeding.

Nutrition: Fueling Our Dolphins

Our dolphins are fed up to 30 lbs. of fish each day, distributed throughout the day to meet their nutritional and caloric needs. Importantly, their diet is not tied to their performance. Even before they start eating fish, dolphins born in our care are fully trained while still nursing on their mother’s milk. This demonstrates that praise and attention from trainers are powerful motivators.

The Training Approach

At Dolphin Academy, we ensure that the dolphins’ activities are varied and engaging, avoiding routine to keep their interest levels high. The dolphins’ enthusiastic responses to public interactions indicate their enjoyment and willingness to participate. Our spacious lagoons give the dolphins the freedom to choose whether to engage with visitors, ensuring they are never overwhelmed.

Open Ocean Program: Symbolizing Trust

Our open ocean program is a testament to the trust and cooperation between our trainers and dolphins. During daily excursions to the open sea, dolphins are free to swim away or return home as they please. At home, they thrive in a dynamic social environment, forming natural associations with one another.
