AMMPA Annual Meeting

AMMPA Annual Meeting

On February in the beautiful coast of the Riviera Maya, took place the annual meeting of the Alliance Marine Mammal Parks and Attractions (AMMPA), making it the first time it is held outside the United States.

With more than 60 experts from all around the world and a program of activities such as “Updates on laws and international politics” or “Status of efforts to save the manatee” receive new members from 2015 certification and renewal. Such was the case of Grupo Dolphin Discovery:

“Dolphin Discovery Group is the company that has certified more dolphinariums, we are grateful to be part of the hostes, so we included in the program of activities a guided tour of the facilities of our dolphinarium in Puerto Aventuras, headquarters of the veterinary team group as well as the breeding program of dolphins, manatees and sea lions, “said Roberto Sanchez Okrucky, Director of Dolphin Discovery Veterinary Medicine Group.

Quintana Roo is a tourist destination, with the highest number of dolphin and marine mammal parks in the country, and now that the annual meeting is happening on our shores means a major breakthrough in the field of psychological and physical health of marine mammals under human care.

AMMPA was founded in 1987 and represents marine life parks such as aquariums, zoos or animal research centers in order to establish best practices in the management of marine mammals and public education.

My “Quince años en Dolphin Discovery”

My “Quince años en Dolphin Discovery”

Maria José Martín Cardozo was one of the winners in the contest “Mis Quince en Dolphin Discovery”.

This August 10th, our winner enjoyed her prize with her brother and friends. They did the “Royal Swim” program at Dolphin Discovery Riviera Maya, and with no doubt we can tell you that they all had a lots of fun and it was a very emotive for Maria José.

 She wrote us the following note telling us how she felt about this experience:

Thank you for this wonderful gift that Dolphin Discovery made for my XV years at
Puerto Aventuras, this is something that will remain in my memory forever.
Dolphins are very smart animals and they transmit an incredible magic,
when I was dancing the waltz with them was very cute, very unexpected, but wonderful,
this moment with my friends and my brother was amazing, we were all
very excited.
Every time I see the photos I believe that my Dad was there, thanks to all the Dolphin Discovery staff, people who chose me as a winner, somehow my dad was with me, that night I talked to him and said, “Dear papito, my love, we did it, we swam with the dolphins!” 

Congratulations to our fifteen year old winner!

Both have great health and they are under our extraordinary veterinarian team care.
They make sure that both stays in a extremely clean area, and that Luna feeds

Some interesting facts about sea lions gestation are:
1.- The gestation period of a Sea Lion is of about 11 months.
2.- The female Sea Lion decides when to start the gestation depending on the better climate and environment for her breeding’s birth. This is why Sea Lion offspring are normally born at summer.
3.- A Sea Lion’s birth takes about two hours.
4.- It can only be born one Sea Lion per gestation.

The little Sea Lion will enjoy the love and care that we will provide him on our Riviera Maya location and soon guests will be able to interact with him.

Dolphin Discovery Riviera Maya is proud to announce  the birth of a dolphin of mama “Regina”. 18 year old Regina is a large female, known for her strength and for her dominant character. She was very protective with her first offspring born in 2010, “Eddie”, who now lives in Dolphin Discovery Costa Maya. We still do not know the gender of the newborn but it is healthy and thriving close to mama’s side. Regina is sure to be a great mother to our latest dolphin family member!

This year we were blessed with the birth of 8 newborn dolphins, 3 in Puerto Aventuras, 2 in Isla Mujeres, 1 in Cozumel, 1 in Tortola and 1 in Los Cabos! We also welcomed a newborn manatee to Puerto Aventuras, a species that is considered to be endangered and the birth of one is a great source of pride for our team. Our reproduction program ensures the highest quality care for our pregnant moms and 24 hour monitoring of the newborns. Our team of veterinarians, biologists and trainers are completely devoted to the animals in their care and are experts in the field of reproductive science in marine mammals.

Congratulations to Regina and a hearty “congratulations and thank you” to our “Miracle” team who worked so hard this year in providing the very best care to all the marine mammals in their charge.
