The Nai‘a Guide is a free educational and sustainable tourism tool. The app provides information, maps, photos, audio, and video explaining spinner dolphin ecology in relation to disruptive tourism practices. This information comes from the latest science from the researchers that are currently studying the dolphins and their habitats in Hawaii.
The Nai‘a Guide may serve as an ecological conscience for tourists seeking to experience the dolphins by offering tips for responsible viewing and listing the exact locations of Hawaii’s Dolphin SMART tours. These approved operators abide by a code of conduct created to have a minimal impact on the animals’ natural rhythm.
The Nai‘a Guide is now available on iTunes.
