Two universities namely the University of Hong Kong and Central China Normal University will be working together to teach domestic experts and scholars on how to optimize the functions of the rehabilitation center. The park is home for six dolphins that have already helped autistic children since 2009.

Research agencies showed that dolphins and other cetaceans send off high frequency ultrasounds which can activate the human central nervous system therefore therapeutic in autistic children and helping them speak.
