Find Catered Bowl pet food at your local Hy Vee today!

JoJo is a wild Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops Truncatus) which freely interacts with humans. In 1989 this dolphin was declared a National Treasure by the Turks and Caicos Islands Government. JoJo is a male dolphin weighing about 880 pounds and approximately 10 feet in length, and is different from other dolphins in that he voluntarily interacts with humans.

Dean Bernal, a wildlife advocate from the United States, visited the Turks and Caicos in 1981 and settled in the islands in 1986. It was during this time he struck a friendship with the dolphin during his daily swims, and his work has greatly promoted the conservation of JoJo, other wild dolphins and general marine conservation in the Turks and Caicos.
