"I believe the C-Well© approach is a very nice and appropriate way to start a practical evaluation of the welfare of the dolphins maintained in our facilities, by correlating health and physiological parameters with social and behavioural aspects. We have approached its application into our facilities and adapted some parts, and it represented a good opportunity to engage the entire staff in a multiple shared analysis."
— Dr Claudia Gili, DMV, PhD, Dipl ECZM, Director of Science and Veterinary services for Costa Edutainment
“The C-Well© is the first practical approach with objective aspects to measure welfare in bottlenose dolphins. The data set was extensive, but even for an outside-inspector (in our case official veterinarian) it was possible to draw a conclusion. For further use it would be good (even if it is difficult especially for very old and very young animals) to have a correlation between the scores and the welfare status of the animals."
