dolphin_island Island Dolphin Care - (Kelly Conover)

Location:  Key Largo, Florida

I was very lucky to receive an internship at Island Dolphin Care Inc. in Key Largo, Florida, the first semester of my senior year at UVM.  At IDC I was given the opportunity to work and live along side students from the United States, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Canada, the Netherlands, and South Africa.  Our job was to assist children with various special needs in the class room and on the platform for their in water therapy session.  This internship is not for students who want personal interaction with the dolphins, but for students who want to work with special needs children and learn more about the benefits of Dolphin Assisted Therapy.  I suggest to those who are more interested in working with the Animals to look on the web for internship at Dolphins Plus, which  is the facility that hosts Island Dolphin Care.

If anyone would like more information feel free to e-mail me at
Good Luck,

Kelly Conover
