Operation Sunshine Family Therapy Programme offers families facing similar situations the unique opportunity to support each other in a trusting, caring, sharing and giving environment.
We are the only charity in the world that offers a programme for severely disadvantaged children that includes experiencing wild dolphin encounters using appropriate equipment and experienced, understanding staff and support workers.
By only working with wild dolphins, the results are significantly more powerful and life changing, they choose to be with the children, they are not lured and we ensure that they and their environment are respected
Bimini offers a small, secure community committed to supporting the programme.
