What the Dolphinaris Foundation has done in the past

The Dolphinaris Foundation worked with Universidad Autónoma del Carmen to perform a health assessment of wild bottlenose dolphins, and also teamed up with Cornell University and Texas & AM Corpus Christi University to aid in the education of future marine veterinarians.

Beach Cleaning by Dolphinaris

Then it should come as no surprise this 2017, Dolphinaris spearheaded a beach-cleaning initiative in Cancun and Riviera Maya.

This is important because millions of pounds of trash can be found at beaches every day!

What did they find?

  • Cigarette butts
  • Plastic bottles
  • Glass bottles
  • Thermal jars
  • Aluminum cans

How much trash was found?

The Dolphinaris Team collected in Cancun over 155 pounds!

The Dolphinaris Team collected in Riviera Maya over 278 pounds!

The Dolphinaris Challenge: How can you help?

Dolphinaris invites everyone to lend a helping hand in keeping the Riviera Maya beaches the most beautiful in the world.

Not only will this help everyone safely enjoy the beaches. But it will protect marine fauna from our trash.

Want to help, but not sure how to proceed?

Here are 5 ways you can keep beaches clean in the Riviera Maya

  1. Make sure you bring your own trash receptacle. Bring several large heavy-duty black trash bags.

Why? Because the beach area may not have a trash receptacle.

  1. When you come to the beach, bring a reusable plastic bottle.

Not only will it most likely keep your drink cooler for a longer period of time, but through time, it will keep the ocean cleaner.

  1. Don’t throw cigarette butts into the sand!

Try using an empty can instead.

  1. Don’t enter the water with plastic objects (like toys, frisbies, etc)

If you must, be sure that all plastic objects stay with you, and not in the ocean.

  1. Do an inventory before you leave

Be sure to ask yourself: Am I leaving with everything that I came with?
