St. Thomas Laboratory 1960-1968

By a series of coincidences John found the means to buy some land in a suitable location on the island of St. Thomas in the Caribbean Sea where he could build his new labaratory.
St. Thomas, US
Virgin Islands. The
laboratory of the the
Research Institute
Here the conditons for
human/dolphin co-
were created.
The pool is a
sea-fed, sea water
pool fed by the
waves-- brought
in through a
wave-ramp, flooding
the balcony of the
lab to a depth of
18 inches.
Below the balcony
is the main dolphin
living space.
The water changes
every two hours,
and as you can
see, the dolphins
are quite happy.
