Welcome to the Dolphin Doctor workshop! This project recognizes the lifetime work of Dr. Sam Ridgway, the original Dolphin Doctor and current President of the National Marine Mammal Foundation. “Dolphin Doctor: On the Front Lines of Marine Mammal Medicine” focuses on marine mammal veterinary medicine and how we use it to conserve species around the world.

We have many resources available to help you learn more about marine mammal medicine. If you prefer to work on your own time, you can access all the activities on this webpage. If you would like to schedule a live workshop, either virtual or in-person, we can schedule a workshop with one of our NMMF educators! Either way, we also have lots of complementary resources to help you learn more, including coloring pages, dolphin doctor workbooks, videos, and some fun crafts and games.

We have designed our workshops as patch programs. Please contact us if you would like us to send you some patches for students who have completed the program.
