Sometimes when I’m researching sites to share with you I”ll do a random keyword search. Thinking of writing up a few seasonal sites, I typed in winter, and was surprised when one of top hits was for the Winter the dolphin. After reading Winter’s story I decided I wanted to share it with you!
Winter is a dolphin rescue who was transported to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium for rehabilitation. Okay, so you’re probably thinking “What makes this dolphin so special?” Well, because of the injury’s Winter sustained as a calf, she lost her tail and two vertebrae. Normally this would be a death sentence for a dolphin, but Winter pulled through and now has a prosthetic tail. You can learn more about what happened on the main page and see photos of her tail.
There’s even a 32 second video trailer for the movie made from Winter’s story, called Dolphin Tale. If you want to learn more about the movie, check out Dolphin Tale on the left side menu. You can check out the film’s Cast, or the photo gallery. Winter played herself in the movie and serves as an inspiration for people all over the world.
