Dolphin SMART is a unique, recognition and education program helping wild dolphins by offering incentives for dolphin viewing businesses that voluntarily participate in the program and educate their customers about the importance of responsibly viewing wild dolphins. Two training workshops will be held in central, southwest Florida on February 21st & 25th, 2013.
