The Sirius Connection

Twenty-forth Anniversay





Today, May 22, 2009 we are celebrating the 24th. Anniversary of the incorporation, in British Columbia, of the Sirius Connection which was created to develop closer and more meaningful connections between people and dolphins. 

This followed a few months after my first dolphin swim with Joe & Rosie of the Human/Dolphin Foundation with John and Toni Lilly. 

Its name derives from historical research that links Sirius, the Dog Star, with the dolphins and, as some think, may be the actual original home of the dolphins.

Star Newland, accompanied by Dr. Michael Hyson will be presenting the results of several years work together developing projects such as:

The Dolphin Birthing project

The Pod Project

Domestic Harmony Awareness Initiative

Interspecies Concerts

...and much more. 

Dolphin video and Navy humpback whalesongs will be shared.




It is now time for the next leap in dolphin-human interaction - time for the human to meet the dolphin with our finest. To do this requires input from all facets of our world, from scientific research to understanding our historic connections to the dolphins and whales. 

We are making toys, musical instruments, communications devices, all useable on land or sea by both humans and dolphins. 

We are now proceeding with the development of:

Human-Dolphin Co-Creative Habitats

rich, playful environments where children and adults can interact with free dolphins and babies can be born. Come play with us and together create philadelphia (brotherly love, love of dolphins). 

This is the beginning of what we call the Dolphinization of the Planet.

We are developing knowledge, products, experiential situations for human-dolphin co-creative living. 

The facilities that arise will be joyous and bring free dolphins to us.

The Sirius Connection is an organization that provides people with experiences of dolphins, educates people about dolphins and is developing dolphin musical instruments, human-dolphin habitats and dolphin playlands.

We invite ideas, concepts and inspiration from others. 

We will happily enter into partnership with individuals/groups with similar goals. 

The network thus formed will move our evolving human-dolphin/Cetacean culture rapidly ahead by providing a central focus for many diverse efforts now globally underway. 

By sharing recent developments much more can be done. 

We feel that the Sirius Connection is a comprehensive and coherent embodiment of the next steps to be accomplished in dolphin-human interactions and relations.

The Sirius Connection's  first subsidiary is the Sirius Institute, a community based dolphin/whale and space research consortium, resident in Hawaii since 1990.

Sirius Institute Summary

Sirius Institute is a tax-exempt Cetacean and space research consortium intent on integrating the Cetacean and Human cultures (“dolphinization”) and the “humanization” of space, bringing the finest qualities of humans out to the stars. 

In over 20 years of research and development (16 in Hawaii) we have created projects and events that will: revitalize the people, increase revenue substantially by needing to spend less to rehabilitate the people from their traumas, increase revenue and production by having more whole people to begin with who are productive, happy, healthy and to bring recognition to Hawaii and its many cultures while creating new enterprises. 

Some of these are:

Cetacean Commonwealth:

whale  Creating a commonwealth of the Cetacean Nations and the Humans who support them to gain their proper rights under human laws as full conscious sentient beings.

Human-Dolphin Habitats:

  d&H  DH2  shamu
