Sylvia Adam, The Dolphin Lady of Dee Why, is a Marine Researcher by profession and has worked extensively overseas in the marine sciences.
This website is an insight to the many experiences she has had over the years. Sylvia wants to share with everyone and anyone who is interested in saving the oceans.
Her concern is for the health of the ocean, the awareness and depletion of the marine life. The human race must accept that they cannot live without a healthy ocean, as we derive food and medications from species of invertebrates, Mollusk’s, Coral and fish.
Her aim since 2007 is to see all large Cetaceans, in captivity, released into Sea pens THEN back into the Ocean. They were captured to entertain humans and housed in Oceanairiums around the world. Dolphin trainers have exploited marine mammals by teaching them unnatural behaviors and rewarding them with defrosted fish. In 2017 this unacceptable and Sylvia will do ALL she can to change the minds of ALL Aquaria NOT to “house” Cetaceans in their establishments.
Sylvia was picked as part of the Australian contingent to attend the United Nations conference on environment and development in Rio de Janeiro in June 1992. There were 192 countries represented and was built as the most important international environment meeting ever held. During her stay in Rio de Janeiro, she met many dignitaries such as the Dali Lama, Jacques Cousteau, and David Suzuki. Also many Hollywood movie stars and singers where present, Shirley McClain, Rolling Stones, Beach Boys and Bono from U2.
Sylvia’s work has taken her to 97 countries where she has lectured and learnt how other nations are “attacking” their problems with the marine environment.
One of her aims is to share her experiences and adventures with colleagues and friends in the hope that they to will understand the importance of keeping our oceans clean.
The Ocean can live without humans,
humans cannot live without the ocean.
