Ocean Adventure is home to several species of dolphins, all of whom are rescued animals. Some came from the drive fishery in Japan where they were literally hours away from being slaughtered. Others were rescued when they came ashore sick and injured in local Philippine waters and once rehabilitated were unlikely to survive if released.

Ocean Adventure opposes the killing of marine mammals anywhere. Nations such as Japan have permitted the harvesting of dolphins and whales, as a food source, for hundreds of years. Less than 1% of these animals are allowed to be taken alive each year, thus saving them from slaughter. That is why we chose to rescue animals from this industry.


Rescue & Rehabilitation

Taking Action to Help All Wildlife

The Ocean Adventure Rescue and Rehabilitation Program is an important part of our commitment to conservation and education. Ocean Adventure works closely with the non-profit Wildlife in Need (WIN) to care for sick, injured, or confiscated animals. To date Ocean Adventure and WIN have received and cared for hundreds of animals including whales, dolphins, sea turtles, monkeys, and a variety of birds and reptiles.

Every animal we care for provides us an opportunity to learn more about their biology and ecology. Information gained from these individuals helps us to be more effective conservationists and to do our part to protect threatened and endangered species.
