Help Dolphins Today

Each year, it takes approximately $1 million to fund the Sarasota Dolphin Research Program. Each gift helps to ensure that we can continue to learn about and help some of the world’s most fascinating creatures. You can help ensure the future of this important and unparalleled wild dolphin research by making a gift today.

Since 1989, Brookfield Zoo Chicago (BZC)  (formerly the Chicago Zoological Society) has operated the Sarasota Dolphin Research Program (SDRP). The CZS mission is to inspire conservation leadership by engaging people and communities with wildlife and nature. BZC is an international leader in wild dolphin conservation and accepts tax-deductible contributions that are applied directly to the SDRP’s research and conservation activities.
