A Friend of CSI's...Shadia

Dedicated to enhancing the connection
between Humans and Whales, Dolphins & Porpoises.

CSI is a program of a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization in the United States,
and has it's primary offices in Queensland, Australia.
CSI moved to Australia in December, 1999, from it's home base in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Founded in 1996, CSI has been engaged in building an archive,
conducting research programs, and producing educational materials and events.

CSI operated an interactive wellness program in Coffs Harbour (2004-2008)
in association with the Pet Porpoise Pool, a marine animal rescue facility.
The Dolphin EDventures Wellness Program enabled people to swim freely with rescued dolphins
in a safe and intimate setting, building friendships and enriching the lives of the dolphins.

CSI is engaged in social science research into the effects and management of human-dolphin contact
as well as research into the nature of dolphin language and the contested spaces of Dolphin-Assisted Therapy.

CSI sponsors The Dolphin Embassy,
an international initiative to recognize the rights of cetaceans to life, clean oceans, and quiet seas.
