The Via Delphi Institute for Research on Marine Mammals works on generating scientific knowledge about marine mammals, mostly of the Tursiops truncatus species. The research center is located in the state of Quintana Roo, near Cancun, where the scientific members make indoor studies; at the same time, the Institute conducts research programs with wild dolphin populations from the Campeche and Tabasco costs, in the Gulf of Mexico, and in Holbox Island, located in the Mexican Caribbean sea. The Institute is divided in two working groups, one composed of biologists and the other of veterinarians, both supported by thesis students and volunteers
