Amanda is an “eco-prenneur” keeping the vision of responsible tourism and conservation alive in the continued growth of The Dolphin & Whale Connection. Above all she has an infectious enthusiasm and passion about dolphins and whales. She believes being in their presence can inspire and empower changes in how we live a more meaningful life. “Over many years swimming and interacting with wild dolphins, I have found a relationship with life that is less and less interrupted by self-doubt and negativity. There is more and more fun, love, abundance and freedom.” There is also a deeper desire to give something back to the magnificent oceans and preserve them. She is an active partner in the WCA which campaigns against specific issues threatening cetaceans.
