Journeys of Discovery: Dolphins can be environmental educators in Hawaii

Dolphin Questat Hilton Waikoloa Village on Hawaii’s Kohala Coast serves as a memorable educational experience for resort guests. But Dolphin Quest’s unsung program is educational field trips for Hawaii’s school children. 

Kids experience hands-on lessons in animal care, marine biology, conservation, and an exhilarating “hand-to-fin” dolphin encounter, says Jackie Milligan, Education Specialist at Dolphin Quest. She talks with Tom Wilmer about the invaluable life lessons the bottlenose dolphins teach the kids.">
