Trainer Marije de Jong

Why do you work at DA?

I have loved animals for my entire life and living and working here in Curacao has given me the amazing opportunity to work with a wide variety of species. I have had the chance to work with Patagonia sea lions, and have also worked both at the Curacao Dolphin Therapy Center, where we concentrate on animal assisted therapy, and now currently work for Dolphin Academy. At Dolphin Academy we are involved in many different areas of training, from medical behaviors such as ultrasounds to open water programs where we take dolphins out onto the reef. It is a fun and exciting place and I am excited to learn and grow!
