Life of Di - The Dolphin Trainer

The Cedar Heights Community Centre at 2316 Lakeview Drive in Blind Bay is pleased to host “Life of Di” on Saturday, December 9 at 10:00 am.  Admission is free but donations to the Food Bank are encouraged.

Diana Robinson now a resident of the south Shuswap will share her story of the events and animals that shaped her life and her career as an animal trainer.  Her dynamic presentation accompanied by photos and video clips of her experiences training dolphins and killer whales will be of interest to kids from 0-100 years of age.

Di Robinson lived most of her life on a farm in Caledon, Ontario. After a “lightbulb moment” very early in high school, her sudden inspiration to become a dolphin trainer was met with adversity from most people. However, Di persevered and eventually her dream was realized a few years later when she accepted a job offer in Mexico, to work with three dolphins and one very special killer whale.  And that was just the first of her extraordinary experiences, teaching and learning from chimps, yaks, dogs and horses to name a few. 

 A limited number of copies of Di’s book, “A KILLER WHALE UPSTAIRS” will be available for sale after the presentation.
