Hope the Dolphin

Went to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium today in Clearwater Florida. It is a marine rescue hospital.

This is the story of Hope: Hope is the newest resident dolphin at CMA. In December 2010, she was discovered in the shallows of Indian River Lagoon as an orphaned 2-month-old calf, still attempting to nurse from her mother, who had died after becoming beached. It was ultimately determined that Hope did not make a good candidate for release because she was very young and had not learned the necessary survival skills to be out in the wild. Hope currently resides in the same area as Winter, and co-starred in Dolphin Tale 2, a sequel to the original movie which dramatized her rescue. Day 305/365.
