Update on Oil for the Florida Keys

The news continues to be positive for the Florida Keys regarding the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. According to the most credible sources, currently, there is no imminent danger of the Keys being affected by the spill. Officials at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or NOAA, report that the northern end of the Loop Current has been pinched off into a large clockwise eddy (Eddy Franklin) so there is no clear path for spilled oil to enter the Loop Current from the source in the northern Gulf of Mexico.

We will certainly keep everyone posted if the situation changes, but right now the waters surrounding Dolphin Research Center and the Keys remain clear, clean, oil-free, and beautiful. You can check out some great footage that was filmed on Sunday, June 20th at www.fla-keys.com. It's a great time to make vacation plans and visit in person. In the meantime, here are some new photographs taken a short time ago around the grounds at DRC. (Please share this information with family and friends! Thank you!)

People and Dolphins Having Fun in the Florida Keys

Everybody's enjoying the beautiful weather, and beautiful, oil-free water, at Dolphin Research Center. (Spread the word!)

All of these photographs were taken at Dolphin Research Center today, June 17th. We continue to be free of oil slicks, sheen and tar balls associated with the Deepwater Horizon explosion. There's no reason to cancel your vacation plans. In fact, it's a great time to plan a great Florida Keys getaway! Hope to see you at DRC soon.

Jax - A Survivor's Tail

In January 2008, a very special young dolphin joined the DRC family. Visitors are amazed at Jax's story of being found, injured and orphaned as a young calf, how he was rescued and rehabilitated and then became part of the DRC pod. Jax - A Survivor's Tail shares his story. This trailer provides a small sample of the complete video.
