It all started when…
a humpback whale song touched her soul.
Dove Joans, aka "Dolphingirl" has spent her lifetime "cracking the dolphin code" through the cognitive sciences, marine biology, the arts, storytelling, animal behavioral work, acting, the healing arts, as well as experiences in the wild with sentient beings and Nature.
Her investigative research into dolphin communications has spanned over 40+ years, featuring what she’s coined as The Dolphin Memory Movement from empirical evidence.
Her passions include using the arts in enhancing planetary care and love, and has authored Dolphin Talk and is currently working on the I am Dolphin book and film series. Being a voice for animals, cultural heritage, and Nature, Dove has created numerous public service announcements and a short documentary film, We are Water Spirit, officially selected in the 2013 Nashville Film Festival and a finalist in Flickerfest’s Byron All Shorts, part of the biggest short film festival in the world.
She is an active explorer with The Explorer Club and for many years has worked alongside Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Futures Society, Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project, The Dream Foundation, and volunteered for Saddle Up!, a therapeutic riding program for challenged children with horses, as well as animal rescues of the Audubon's "Eyes in the Skies" with wild birds of prey, and the Santa Barbara's Marine Mammal Center, a rescue and release program for injured sea mammals.
Currently, “Dolphingirl” is preparing The Dolphin Smile educational eco-tour and upcoming expedition.
Will include speaking engagements worldwide of interactive "Dolphin Talks,” sharing the science, cultural connections, and secrets behind our aquatic connection, with the power behind animal communications for the 21st century.
Key highlights for the eco-tour and expedition will be leaving waves of “flipper footprints” and being an aquatic super-hero for the planet!
