Dr. Horace Dobbs is renowned around the world for his amusing, yet thought provoking talks and film shows on his work and experiences with dolphins.
Horace’s enthusiasm and ability to transmit his ideas at all levels so endeared him to big audiences at the National Geographic Society in Washington, that he was awarded a Silver Bowl (the equivalent to an Oscar in the film world) by the International Platform Association for his presentation ‘Follow a Wild Dolphin’ about Donald the dolphin.

The response indicates that this meeting will be regarded as a highlight of this years program
Dick Colgrave
Stamford U3A (University of the Third Age)

Horace’s talks in schools, universities, libraries and literary festivals in which he introduces Dilo and tells how he discovered that the mischievous, make-believe dolphin can help of all abilities to learn to read and write more quickly are always enthusiastically received by the students and teachers alike.
Horace enjoys the the challenge of speaking to all types of audiences, large and small. “If I cannot communicate with my fellow humans, how can I hope to communicate with dolphins who have brains as large as ours?” he says.

 

 

 

THE MAGIC OF DOLPHINS

Author/broadcaster HORACE DOBBS invites you to take an amusing and thought-provoking journey into the world of the mammal that has been described as “Man’s Cousin in the Sea”

HORACE DOBBS was awarded a Silver Bowl (the equivalent to an Oscar) for his talk on dolphins by the International Platform Association in Washington. Other recipients include Winston Churchill and John F. Kennedy. When you hear Horace speak you will understand why he won this prestigious award.

In his presentation Horace will take his audience on an enthralling journey into the joy filled world of the dolphins. Along the way he reveals how he left orthodox medical research to find out why dolphins have such a special place in our hearts. And of the extraordinary events that led him to discover that dolphins can help those in clinical depression and children with special needs.

Horace always brings some of his books to his presentations and is pleased to sign them with special dedications.

Dr Horace Dobbs has published scientific papers in fields as divers as nuclear chemistry, medicine and pharmacology. His remarkable and adventurous life is documented in numerous best selling books and TV films. He founded The Oxford Underwater Research Group and the charity International Dolphin Watch.
