Dolphin Care & Training Internship Abroad
From 1 January 2022, we will offer an extended internship program (dolphin care & trainer program) at “Bali Exotic Marine Park”. In addition to the internship in Dolphin Assisted Therapy, we have created an additional program for those whose focus is not on the handling / therapy with disabled patients, but rather on dealing with dolphins themselves – their attitude, training and their daily lives with us.
This shall include the entire care for our 10 dolphins – from the daily check on the dolphins health condition, preparation of their food, the feeding, the daily training programs, the active participation in the daily customer programs (interaction & therapy programs), the guidance & control of the dolphin in the therapy, the active participation in the program “swimming with dolphins”, learning to maintain the seawater filtration system and maintain the entire seawater swimming pool complex and more….
After completing this educational internship program, we issue a certificate of participation that shows the personal data of the participant, the duration and the requirements of this internship.
Our dolphin facility in Benoa/South Bali offers the possibility for interns of all nationalities to do an internship in the field “Dolphin Care & Training”. We offer this educational internship program for all persons interested.
