Cancun, Quintana Roo on October 19th 2021.- We are pleased that the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners, under the guidance of Mayor Daniella Levine Cava and Commissioner Raquel Regalado, unanimously approved a resolution to assign the lease and associated operations of the Miami Seaquarium to The Dolphin Company. We commend the County’s efforts to ensure further transparency and accountability at the Miami Seaquarium and to promote animal conservation and welfare. We share these same values and principles. The Dolphin Company is excited to be an integral part of this new chapter in the history of the Miami Seaquarium and we look forward to elevating the standard of care for all of the animals at the Miami Seaquarium.
For more than 25 years, The Dolphin Company has operated with the mission to connect people with magnificent marine mammals and marine life through educational and interactive experiences. At every one of our parks across the globe, including the three we currently operate in Florida in St. Augustine, Panama City Beach and the Florida Keys, animal welfare is our primary concern.
In the United States and throughout the world, all of our parks comply with local and federal laws and regulations governing marine and other terrestrial animals. Pending a successful completion of all actions of transfer, The Dolphin Company will be pleased to join the Miami-Dade County community and welcome the Miami Seaquarium into our family of parks, sharing our experience as responsible animal stewards for the benefit of the animals, staff and guests.
As with all of the Dolphin Company facilities, every aspect of operations at Miami Seaquarium will be carefully evaluated and any necessary enhancements or improvements to the facilities will be promptly implemented.
