A Little About the Dolphin Reef in Eilat
Dolphin Reef, opened in 1990, is dedicated to the vision of bringing humans and animals closer together in a respectful manner. The dolphins at Dolphin Reef are wild and are not held in captivity in any way. They have the ability to come and go as they please with constant access to the sea. The goal of the Dolphin Reef is to maintain three values; environment, society, and economics. For the environment, they want to bring humans and nature together through positive interactions and with respect to the local habitat. They gain knowledge through scientific research that causes zero harm. For society, they want to lead by example, demonstrating that humankind and nature can coincide in peace. Lastly, for economics, they pride themselves on economic independence to remain resolute in their values and strategy.
