This was one of my goals while I was in the Florida Keyes. I had researched this online at home and just hoped that we got to visit. Found in Grassy Key, Florida,
Their mission statement is to maintaining the best possible environment for the dolphins and sea lions at the Center, we also dedicate ourselves to assisting marine mammals in distress in the surrounding waters of the Keys. For decades, DRC operated as the Southernmost member of the Marine Mammal Stranding Network. We rescued and rehabilitated whales and dolphins, providing expert medical attention to help ease the way for our marine friends from the wild. The rescue and rehabilitation procedures provided us with invaluable opportunities for critical research and data collection. DRC extended its rescue commitment to include the endangered manatee and is currently the only facility in the Florida Keys licensed by the Federal Government to assist manatees in distress.
This was a really nice place and I am so pleased that we got to visit, You learn so much about dolphins and I would recommend it, if you are ever in the Florida Keyes !
