Behavior

The Foundation Animal Behavior Team is dedicated to advancing the behavior and care of marine mammals by using the most advanced and humane training techniques that build confidence in the animal and precision in the desired behaviors. Our team enables trained marine mammals to swim freely in open ocean water and to participate in full and voluntary health exams.
