WHY SUPPORT US?
Victoria's living marine treasures, especially our dolphins, are "too precious to lose". Most are not found anywhere else on the planet.
They are threatened by the impacts of 4.5 million of us living around and using the bays. Our population and risks are expected to double by 2050.
For 25 years our loyal donors have supported DRI's dedicated team of staff and volunteers to deliver tangible outcomes through research, education and environmental leadership.
There is no one else like the Dolphin Research Institute and you can be very confident that every cent donated helps to make a difference.
Last year only 5% of DRI's revenue was spent on fundraising, leaving all donations to be spent on core programs:
- Finding answers to scientific questions to support management and protection;
- Furthering our marine education programs with children and adults;
- Expanding our award-winning 'i sea, i care' Ambassador Program and developing young leaders;
- Pro-actively influencing real change and actions through policy development and environmental decision-making.
Why we do what we do...
